88 Scott, a landmark 58-storey mixed-use development in Downtown Toronto, and the largest of Concert’s condominiums, has achieved LEED Gold Certification from the Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC).
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a rating system that is recognized as the international mark of excellence for green building.
88 Scott integrates many energy saving features including energy-efficient lighting, and plumbing fixtures and mechanical systems such as energy recovery ventilators, variable speed motors and regenerative elevator drives.
Since 2012, Concert’s mandate has been to design and construct its projects to the rigorous standards of LEED Gold. “To date, we have designed and built more than 20 buildings that have achieved various levels of LEED certification,” says Brian McCauley, Concert’s President & Chief Executive Officer. “I thank the entire Development and Construction team, including Bird Construction, consultants and trade partners who worked towards this achievement and their continued effort towards Concert’s commitment for sustainable buildings.”
88 Scott is also anticipating achievement of Tier 2 of the Toronto Green Standard for sustainable design.
