Redcliff Métivier recognized for sustainability efforts
Redcliff Métivier has been officially recognized by LEED and BOMA BESt guidelines for the company’s sustainable development practices. Two of the company’s Montreal office properties—999 de Maisonneuve Blvd. West (Level 1 certification) and 8000 Décarie Blvd. (Level 2 certification)—were granted BOMA BESt certifications, and on October 18th, the Centre de distribution Montréal-Akzo Nobel in St. Hubert earned its Silver LEED Canada-NC 1.0 certification.

999 de Maisonneuve Blvd. West, an 18-storey tower, is located in the heart of Montreal’s business district, at the corner of Metcalfe St., one of the city’s busiest intersections. The building is equipped with ultra-modern, high-performance facilities—be it telecommunications, air conditioning, vertical transportation or security—and features a state-of-the-art conference centre and fitness centre, according to a company news release. 8000 Décarie Blvd. is a 6-storey property located in the Côte-des-Neiges borough, at the corner of Ferrier St. The Centre de distribution Montréal-Akzo Nobel is an industrial property built in 2008 and located near the St. Hubert airport.
Another sustainable project in which Redcliff Métivier is closely involved, the Maison du développement durable, is aiming for the highest level of LEED certification, LEED Canada-NC 1.0 Platinum. Construction in Montreal’s Quartier des spectacles is progressing smoothly, says the company, and the first tenants are expected to occupy the premises in the summer of 2011.
As sustainable development gains recognition, green building efforts are becoming more mainstream. Today’s businesses are increasingly aware of the importance of environmentally friendly policies and Redcliff Métivier says it has been a leader in environmental programs for the properties they manage. The company’s programs include environmentally focused procurement and waste-reduction initiatives, energy-efficiency programs and green building. These efforts, says the company, are exactly in line with recognized certification programs such as LEED and BOMA BESt.
