Beclin, the first business park in Newfoundland and Labrador to be LEED® Certified.
Innovation doesn’t happen without teamwork. And neither do firsts. Beclin, in Mount Pearl, is the first business park in Newfoundland and Labrador to be LEED® Certified. That’s a whole lot of green thinking, including natural lighting, high insulation values, managed energy, and recycled building materials.
The prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification is a rating system recognizing environmental excellence in over 160 countries. LEED® works because it recognizes that sustainability should be at the heart of all buildings – in their design, construction, and operation. Since 2004, the CaGBC has certified over 2,800 LEED® buildings in Canada and registered over 5,000 – with the second-highest number of LEED® projects anywhere in the world.
The Beclin Business Park was built in less than five years, and has added 250,000 square feet of industrial space to the market.
Congratulations to the team who made Beclin a sustainable green success story.
