New Construction

In 2010 Dalhousie passed a Green Building Policy that states all new buildings over 10,000 square feet should aim for LEED® Gold Certified, or higher. Some buildings started the planning process before or during 2010, in some of these cases LEED® Silver was achieved. Each building has unique green features including a self-guided green building signs, bubble deck, solar wall, solar thermal, rain water cistern, green roof, Optinet sensors, LED lighting, electric car charge station, chilled beam cooling, and permeable pavement.

We pursued innovative green building strategies for two new Dalhousie buildings, the IDEA Building and the Fitness Centre. Both were completed earlier in 2018. Watch our video about the green building strategies at the IDEA Building.
