We Can Help
The City has a long history in green building, extending back to the 1990s with the reconstruction of the Pickering Barn and the construction of the Public Works Operations buildings, both of which include numerous green features.

The City’s efforts have helped lead to significant results – more than 2,300 Built Green-certified homes and more than a dozen LEED-certified buildings to date.

We've found the sustainable building often is simply smart building, which is more innovative, comfortable, durable and productive, as well as less expensive to operate.

We're eager to help you achieve this! We're available to help with technical expertise and we also support green building with permit expediting and financial incentives.
