Whitgift Gardens North-East Phase 1 is the first phase of a master planned community that aims to place responsible and sustainable design at the forefront of decision-making. At the core of many of the sustainability initiatives for Whitgift Gardens is a focus on reducing operational and embodied carbon, aligning with Concert’s Sustainability Framework (CSF). Several initiatives and certification systems are envisioned. The ~21,500 sf stand-alone amenity building (Neighbour Hub) is proposed to be a showcase of sustainability on many fronts. The Neighbour Hub’s achievement of Passive House certification and Zero Carbon Building certification would make it one of only a few such community facilities in North America. The Towers will meet Step 3 of the BC Energy Step Code and Fitwel 2 Star certification.
