Humber River Hospital Achieves LEED Gold Certification
Humber River Hospital, located in Toronto, Ontario, and its project partners announced the facility’s achievement of LEED Gold certification through the Canada Green Building Council.
The acute care hospital achieved a design energy use intensity (EUI) of 348 ekWh/m2 and features 100 percent fresh air circulation. Twenty percent of the materials used to construct the facility contained recycled content and 46 percent were sourced regionally. Thirty-eight percent of the project’s total site area includes vegetated open space and there is a 33 percent water use reduction due to water efficient landscaping using captured rainwater. A vegetated roof and reflective roofing materials reduce heat island effect.
