January 5, 2022
Okanagan College has received LEED gold certification for its new Health Sciences Centre located at its Kelowna campus. The building was also designed to the WELL Building Standard, which ensures that the spaces are designed intentionally to support health and well-being. “We have a responsibility to our community to design and build energy-efficient and environmentally responsible infrastructure,” said Facilities Management Director Steve Robinson. “It is often a challenging endeavour, but when the certification is complete, everyone is proud of what has been accomplished and excited about how we can stretch further on the next project.” Okanagan (BC)
