What is "Model" Sustainability? UniverCity's Journey Toward Sustainability Today - Dale Mikkelsen

Published on

Dale Mikkelsen, Director of Development, SFU Community Trust
Simon Fraser University (SFU) created its Community Trust to develop a model community on about 65 hectares of land surrounding SFU’s Burnaby campus in British Columbia.
That ‘sustainable community on the mountain’ became UniverCity, the award-winning, mixed-use, transit-oriented district with a diverse range of housing choices, shops, services, and amenities. And the UniverCity Childcare Centre is expected to be the first building in Canada to meet the Living Building Challenge, the most ambitious rating system in North America for environmentally sustainable architectural design.
A model for practical and affordable sustainability, UniverCity also generates endowment wealth to support teaching and research at SFU.
As the Director of Development for SFU Community Trust, Dale Mikkelsen is charged with raising the bar of sustainable community planning to ensure UniverCity remains on the leading edge of energy efficiency, material conservation, healthy environments and community building.
Mikkelsen brings a wealth of experience to the UniverCity project having been the lead project planner for the City of Vancouver’s 2010 Athlete Village, the City of Vancouver’s Green Building Planner, and a Board Member for the International Living Future Institute.

  17. 17. the Vision “This project brings together the renowned Reggio Emilia childcare model with a building that promises to raise the bar to a new level of environmental stewardship. The UniverCity Childcare project will be housed in a building that will be one of the first in Canada to meet the “Living Building Challenge® ” In order to meet this challenge the building will be energy independent, water independent, free of toxic materials and completely local in its composition. Last but certainly not least, it is designed to be an aesthetic joy to all who live and work in it.” www.univercitychildcare.ca UniverCity childcare facility
  18. 18. Living Building Challenge No credits, just prerequisites: Imagine buildings that are built to operate as elegantly and efficiently as a flower. Imagine a building that is informed by the eco-region’s characteristics and that generates all of its own energy with renewable resources, that captures and treats all of its water on site that uses resources efficiently, and for maximum beauty.
