Technopôle Angus Obtains LEED-ND v4 Platinum Certification for Green Neighbourhoods

Montréal, Canada

Provencher_Roy

Montréal, Canada, 2018-09-07 -

The development plan for the Technopôle Angus has just obtained LEED® v4 Platinum certification for sustainable neighbourhood design. As one of the first green neighbourhoods in the world to be an employment hub, the Technopôle is proof that any private urban area can become an exemplary and truly sustainable living environment.

 

LEED® certification 

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) is one of the most popular and rigorous rating systems not only in North America, but worldwide. Created in 1998 by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED® is an independent certification program for the design, construction, maintenance and operation of sustainable buildings and neighbourhoods. LEED-ND (Neighborhood Development) certification was jointly developed with the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Congress for the New Urbanism. Its aim is to reduce the impacts of urban growth on the environment and on citizens by encouraging intelligent neighbourhood design, sustainable mobility and economic vitality.

 

A mixed-use green neighbourhood 

Within the LEED® certification hierarchy, the attainment of the Platinum level remains an exceptional feat. The Technopôle Angus project stands out thanks to the tremendous commitment of its dedicated team, an intensive integrated design process, deep sensitivity to context, and compliance with stringent performance standards. 

 

Technopôle Angus is both an urban revitalization project and a living laboratory for sustainable development and social innovation. Located in the heart of a central residential district of Montreal, this new mixed-use green neighbourhood will transform a former industrial park into an urban village where businesses and families coexist in a vibrant, welcoming and environmentally responsible community. Besides creating jobs, providing affordable housing and reintegrating the site into the neighbourhood, the project, through financing generated by its density and mixed uses, will integrate green infrastructure, including an energy loop (40% more efficient than ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010) and a collection system that reuses 95% of rainwater. The circulation within the site is free of automobiles and fully pedestrianized while the landscaping promotes biodiversity, thus creating a network of comfortable, quality public spaces that, along with the new local businesses and easy access to alternative means of transport, will support a more sustainable lifestyle.

 

The green neighbourhood is designed by multidisciplinary firm Provencher_Roy in collaboration with NIP Paysage, Vinci Consultants and Pageau Morel associés as part of an expanded integrated design process begun in 2012.

   

Technopôle Angus, a project spearheaded by Société de développement Angus

Technopôle Angus is a flagship project for Société de développement Angus, a social economy enterprise whose mission is to develop urban renewal projects that deliver lasting, sustainable benefits.
