    Submitted by: Lori Lee Hollett

    The Canada Green Building Council has awarded silver LEED status to Grenfell’s new Residence Complex. LEED, which stands for leadership in energy and environmental design, is a rating system that is recognized as the international mark of excellence for green building in more than 132 countries. LEED buildings provide an improved indoor environment, lower maintenance costs and reduced risk of remedial measures associated with environmental factors. Energy savings for buildings with silver status range from 35 to 50 per cent. The new residence opened in September 2013 and has 200 student beds, including common kitchens and lounges on each floor. The project team focused their sustainability efforts on student health and building energy efficiency, including means for alternative transportation, incorporated green / healthy materials and access to exterior views. Macpherson College, one of the new student residences on the St. John’s campus, is also LEED certified at the silver level. Here, Dr. Mary Bluechardt, vice-president, Grenfell Campus; Hannah Harris, residence floor advisor; Jennifer Mitchell, manager Student Housing and Javis Hulan, director, Facilities Management pose with the plaque which will hang in the lobby of the new residence.
