Glenmore Landfill Administration Building

The new 650-square metre administration building at Kelowna’s Glenmore Landfill is an example of site-specific sustainable design, in which wood features prominently as both a structural and finish material. The design aimed to reduce the energy use of the building by more than 40 percent when compared to current standard building practices, and was constructed to minimize impact on the local ecology. By adopting conservation strategies and using available passive energy, the design has minimized the consumption of energy, water and materials.
