Ergonomic workstations help Montreal campus earn LEED Silver

Friday, November 24, 2017

Ergonomic and height adjustable workstations, green walls and roofs, and LED motion-detection lighting are among the features that helped ABB Campus Montreal recently earn LEED Silver certification.

“The ABB team has accomplished a significant environmental milestone,” Nathalie Pilon, president of ABB in Canada, said in a news release. “The LEED Silver certification recognizes the commitment we have made to contributing to a clean future for Canada by reducing our footprint today, and well into the future.”

ABB in Canada, a leader in power transmission and distribution, debuted its new, 300,000-square-foot corporate headquarters, where activities include manufacturing and research and development, in May. The $90-million project brought 700 employers from six locations in Greater Montreal under one roof in Technoparc Montreal.

Campus Montreal was awarded 54 points, exceeding the minimum score of 40 required to earn LEED certification. Some of the other features that contributed to its Silver status are efficient heating and cooling and low-consumption toilets as well as electric vehicle charging stations and a parking program that gives preference to carpooling and hybrid vehicles.

“We wish to thank all of our professionals and team leaders who contributed to the base building and tenant improvement work that has enabled us to achieve this designation,” Domenic Fabiano, VP of business development and pre-construction, Broccolini Ownership Group, said in a news release. “Our collaborative efforts and commitment to deliver a landmark project are being recognized.”
