The VanDusen Botanical Gardens Visitor Centre is a leader in the field of living building and regenerative design.
This project is paving the way for buildings across Canada to look beyond LEED Platinum. Being amongst the first of its kind in the country has provided great triumph at times but also many lessons learned and challenges faced. Through rigid constraints has emerged creativity and new design methods. The design process has evolved to encompass research, material testing and collaboration.
This session will explore the lessons learned in pursuit of certifying VanDusen as both LEED Platinum and Living Building simultaneously.
