Ryerson Student Learning Centre Receives LEED Gold Certification

Ryerson University’s Student Learning Centre has been certified LEED Gold for New Construction by the Canadian Green Building Council!

The university originally envisioned a LEED Silver certification, but this target was surpassed. Green building points include 50% green roof coverage, water efficient landscaping, use of low-emitting materials, over 30% water use reduction, and the diversion of 75% of construction waste from landfills. Roof and ground water collection systems were also installed to harvest storm water for use instead of potable water.
