Net Zero Generation
We worked with Longos and Neelands Group to build the first sustainable supermarket in Canada.
Supermarkets are one of the most energy-intensive retail businesses due to their large cooling and heating needs. Canada’s northern climate makes the need for reducing greenhouse gas emissions even more challenging. This project included an aggressive goal of reducing 1,500-2,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases per year.
In October 2018 we completed construction on a 40,000-square-foot store located in Stouffville, Ontario. The project incorporated many sustainability practices including an efficient building envelope and lighting, and improved heat recovery. Solar power was harnessed through a microgrid with solar panels installed on the rooftop, facade and parking canopy.
