The myth is that green, zero emission buildings are more expensive. Not so.
In fact, all our buildings are specifically designed to comply with LEED® while offering rent which is competitive with other “traditional” office developments. ZeroCarbon has developed a variety of cost-effective green building designs specifically tailored to the needs of large corporate tenants.
These buildings not only adhere to LEED® standards, and reduce carbon emissions, but they actually compete head-to-head on pricing with any office building in North America. At the same time, the cost of renting space in a ZeroCarbon building is on par with renting space in a traditional building — with the added benefit of lower energy costs.
ZeroCarbon buildings feature
- energy-efficient building envelopes
- high-efficiency mechanical and electrical systems
- more efficient water usage
- built with recycled building materials.
It all adds up to reduced green house gas emissions, less landfill, and cleaner air & water. With more environmentally responsible buildings being developed, and more companies taking a “greener view”, the environmental impact of workspaces can be significantly reduced in the long term.
A ZeroCarbon building will help to reduce operating costs as well as eliminate C02 emissions. And as the public concern for sustainable development continues to grow, a ZeroCarbon workspace can improve corporate governance as well. With our energy management technologies, our prototype is at least 50 per cent more energy-efficient than the MNECB standards, and can help improve our tenants’ profitablility. Our expertise in building green work environments across the country has helped us to determine production and cost efficiencies, making our buildings among the most affordable of their
kind in Canada.
