Vancouver Convention Centre West Sustainability Consulting and LEED® Platinum Project Management


Vancouver, BC  

With the ambitious goal of becoming the world’s most sustainable convention centre, Vancouver Convention Centre engaged WSP to provide strategic sustainability consulting and project management of their pursuit of LEED® for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED®-EB) for the West building. The project required an unusual approach due to the building’s complexity and atypical systems, coupled with the voluntary registration under the newest, most stringent version of the standard. The Centre achieved LEED® version 4 and the highest award level, Platinum, making it the world’s first double LEED® Platinum convention centre, and Canada’s first LEED® Platinum existing building certified under version 4.
