Tridel
As Canada’s largest builder of green condominiums, Tridel is on the leading edge of a transformation of the built environment. Since 2006, the company has initiated development of approximately 12 million square feet of new construction in dozens of highrise communities pursuing certification by the LEED green building rating system. On average, Tridel communities reduce electricity by approximately 30% and natural gas consumption by almost 45%. This results in the elimination of over 12,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases each year, and a substantial energy cost savings for condominium owners. At the same time, Tridel has advanced some of the most important energy efficiency measures in their industry, most notably by adopting energy recovery on ventilation air, and thermal and electrical sub-metering to manage costs.
