  1. 1. May 12th, 2009Leadership in Energy and Environmental DesignLEED CERTIFICATION OVERVIEWMONTREAL, QUEBEC
  2. 2. WHO WE ARE 50 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN INDUSTRIAL ARCHITECTURE• Founded in 1959 by M.D. Gross (since retired). Formed Gross Kaplin Coviensky Architects in 1986.• Specialize in Commercial & Industrial design.• Construct 1-2M sq.ft. per year.• Recently moved to our LEED GOLD offices (in certification process). 1
  3. 3. WHAT WE DO CANADIAN TIRE DISTRIBUTION CENTRE, COTEAU DU LAC.1,600,000 sq.ft.167 Acres 2
  4. 4. WHAT WE DO RONA HEAD OFFICE, BOUCHERVILLE3 expansions totaling1,200,000 sq.ft. 3

  6. 6. WHAT WE DO SOBEYS, VAUGHAN.500,000 sq.ft.70’ High WarehouseWill be amongst the most automated facilities in North America 5
  7. 7. WHAT WE DO SUSTAINABLE INDUSTRIAL ARCHITECTURE.• Outdoor Gear Canada – Québec’s First LEED Certified Industrial Building• Sobeys Trois-Rivières – First LEED* certified Refrigerated Warehouse• Sunlife Multi-Tenant – LEED Certified* – Core and Shell• SICO – LEED Certified Industrial Building*• GKC Offices – LEED Gold* – Commercial Interior 6 * LEED Certification pending
  8. 8. WHAT IS LEED?•The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green BuildingRating System™ encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainablegreen building and development practices through the creation andimplementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performancecriteria.•LEED is a third-party certification program and an internationally acceptedbenchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance greenbuildings. It provides building owners and operators the tools they need to havean immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. 7
  9. 9. WHAT IS LEED?LEED promotes a whole-building approach tosustainability by recognizing performance infive key areas of human and environmentalhealth:•sustainable sitedevelopment•water efficiency•energy efficiency•materials selection•indoor environmental qualityINTEGRATED DESIGN PROCESS 8
