Galt St Flats, Vancouver, BC

Galt Street Flats, located in Vancouver’s Renfrew-Collingwood neighbourhood, is a purpose-built rental development by Bold Properties featuring a collection of 2 & 3 bedroom units. With close access to transit, parks, and a gamut of Kingsway-style retail amenities, this boutique project is designed for urban family living. 

The project had an initial target of LEED Gold but achieved the prestigious LEED Platinum by focusing on energy reduction, water conservation, and healthy building materials. Energy consumption was reduced significantly for the project by using Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) and high-performance building envelope. Congratulations to owner Bold Properties, architect Carscadden Stokes McDonald and nice work to our project manager Chris Kendall.

Central Green is a multi-phased community located in the heart of Kelowna offering heritage-inspired architecture and urban living. Buildings B & F are two multi-story residential buildings that had an initial target of LEED-certified. Through an integrative design process, the project team was able to introduce higher sustainability measures such as Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and low flow water fixtures that helped both buildings to achieve LEED Gold certification. Kudos to owner Al Stober Construction & Meiklejohn Architects Inc. Thank you to our project manager Tim Tewsley.

E3 Eco Group provided Green Rater/Provider services on both projects.
