Hepburn’s Heritage Common being upgraded with help from GICB

April 26, 2023  By  Anthony Capkun

April 26, 2023 – The Heritage Common building in the Town of Hepburn, Sask., is receiving $2,381,621 from the Green and Inclusive Community Buildings (GICB) program for a number of upgrades.

The Town of Hepburn is contributing $595,405 to the project.

Located just 30 minutes north of Saskatoon, Heritage Common offers a versatile space for “literally, any event”.

Renovations will involve upgrades to the lighting, windows, and heating and cooling system, and enable the installation of automatic door openers to improve accessibility.

Additionally, the space will benefit from renovations and repairs to its roof, as well as the installation of solar panels.

The improvements are expected to reduce the facility’s energy consumption by an estimated 22.20% and GHG emissions by 229 tonnes annually.

The five-year, $1.5-billion Green and Inclusive Community Buildings program supports green and accessible retrofits, repairs or upgrades of existing public community buildings, and the construction of new publicly accessible community buildings that serve high-needs, underserved communities across Canada.

The application period for the GICB Program is closed.
