We’re proud to have received a 2013 Canadian Green Building Award for the County of Simcoe Administrative Centre expansion. Designed in partnership with Teeple Architects of Toronto, the expansion is intended to resolve the complex access to the existing building and to take advantage of a natural site. Public access to 22 different departments are improved though the design of an external ring, which connects existing spaces and new areas of the building. Along with much needed public space, the design also includes a new cafeteria and lounge area for staff. The expansion was carefully sited to minimize the impact to the site. The new addition is LEED Gold certified.
The Canadian Green Building Awards recognize excellence in the design and execution of Canadian buildings, houses and interiors based on the criteria of sustainable design, architectural merit and technical innovation. The 2013 award winners were announced on June 4, 2013, at the CaGBC National Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia.
