LEED Canada Launches Green Building Pilot Project

The deadline has been extended for submitting expressions of interest in participating in the LEED Canada Complete Pilot Project for Commercial Office Buildings.

This initiative has the support of REALpac and NAIOP who are encouraging their members’ participation in the pilot. Expressions of interest are to be submitted to Maura Chestnutt at the CaGBC: mchestnutt(at) or by fax to: 604-681-7817.

The CaGBC will be giving a 2-week notice when the submission period will be ending.

LEED® Canada Complete is being developed by the CaGBC for launch in 2008 at the CaGBC’s first national summit, June 11-12, 2008 in Toronto, and full program launch in 2009. It is an expansion to provide low-cost, performance-based LEED certification at all stages of a building’s life cycle via a distributed, on-line, market-based delivery.
