Rogers Place Achieves LEED® Silver!
Rogers Place, home of the Edmonton Oilers in the heart of downtown Edmonton’s ICE District, has reached a new milestone: LEED® Silver! It’s the first NHL facility in Canada that is built to LEED® Silver standards, and DIALOG is proud to have a role in making that happen.
As the lead sustainability consultants on the project, we led the client, construction, and design teams through the sustainability strategy. We held early stage workshops with visioning, provided direction throughout the project, and administered the LEED® application.
“Designing and building a facility of this magnitude to meet rigorous green building standards is an ambitious undertaking, but one with the potential to have a positive impact on visitors, where they can see sustainability in action. This certification sets a strong example for other large venues in Canada that every building can achieve superior environmental performance.”
-Thomas Mueller, President and CEO of Canada Green Building Council.
As part of the LEED® New Construction certification, a major consideration is the process and materials used for construction. PCL did an excellent job of managing sustainable efforts throughout the construction by committing to green building products and waste management, and managing air quality throughout the build.
Rogers Place continues to reduce their environmental impact by committing to green operations including cleaning, education, and food waste handling.
“Oilers Entertainment Group is a strong advocate for environmental design and operation. We also want to acknowledge the many committed staff at OEG who contributed to this milestone. We are all so very proud of the accomplishment.”
-Susan Darrington, Executive Vice President, Rogers Place.
Congratulations to the client, design and construction teams on this major achievement!
