66 Slater Receives LEED Gold Certification

After just five short years of intensive energy conservation initiatives and upgrades, 66 Slater, a 266,000 square foot office building in Ottawa Ontario, has received LEED Gold Certification for an existing building. The decision to go for a LEED Certification was made in December 2014 after an extensive LEED feasibility study was conducted at the site. The site team worked diligently over the next year on energy reductions propelling the site’s Energy Star Score from a 42 to a 78. Originally constructed in 1969, 66 Slater’s green features now include;

  • Building Retro-Commissioning
  • Installed Real-Time Metering Software
  • Improved Operating Procedures (enhanced equipment run-time schedules and equipment maintenance procedures)
  • Numerous Mechanical Equipment Replacements
  • Building Lighting Retrofits
  • Low Flow Washroom Fixtures LEED EB (O+M) Compliant
  • Enhanced Envelope Maintenance
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality

The benefits offered by a LEED certified building include lower operating costs, waste reduction, water conservation, greenhouse gas emission reduction and a healthy and safer building.
