The CaGBC's mission is to lead and accelerate the transformation to high-performing, healthy green buildings, homes and communities throughout Canada. With our Vancouver office, it was essential to achieve a high level of LEED® for Commercial Interiors certification. Penner & Associates worked tirelessly to solicit donations from manufacturers and suppliers, while simultaneously designing a beautiful work environment that makes efficient use of space for a growing organization. Penner + Associates contributed significantly to the CaGBC Vancouver office achieving Gold certification by optimizing points related to LEED Materials & Resources credits. The end result is a work environment that clearly communicates the CaGBC mission and brand, and the importance of good design.
