2010 / Provincial

Le 1000  has received a LEED certification for Existing Buildings by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in 2010.

Le 1000 De La Gauchetière managed to get the certification level of OM (Operation and Maintenance) which recognizes exemplary environmental performance of the building in terms of operation and maintenance. Le 1000 De La Gauchetière became the second building in Canada to be certified LEED EB OM, while also having the largest square footage.

To qualify for this prestigious recognition, the property management team submitted to the USGBC a complete document on the building's environmental performance detailing several aspects such as its incentives for sustainable transportation, waste management, specialty product purchases and air quality.

Le 1000's candidacy stood out thanks to its capacity in providing natural lighting to the majority of its occupants, its high performance in material management, its recycling programs for cimputer equipment and its communication plan to sensitize its occupants.

Our commitment to the LEED procedures also confirmed the low water consumption for the water towers' maintenance, and engaged us to obtain a general water meter complex that will allow us to pecisely monitor the building's water consumption activities.
