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.
