Sustainable Building


These days, no matter what line of work you’re in, it’s hard to deny that green is good business. Green commercial developments offer employees and customers alike better working and shopping conditions. Green commercial buildings are healthy, inspiring places to work – increasing productivity and employee retention. Best of all, green buildings substantially reduce carbon emissions. It’s a win for your business and it’s a win for the environment.

Green Development: How it Works

Conserve Energy
• Ventilators recover heated or cooled air and guarantee substantial energy savings
• Efficient use of water and energy reduces costs substantially
• High performance double-glazing windows ensure maximum efficiency
• Thermal insulated walls minimize drafts

Work Better
• Ventilation systems bring filtered fresh air in from the outdoors (not from the lobby) providing a higher level of indoor air quality
• “Green Seal” certified paints use mostly natural, biodegradable compounds

Help the Environment
• High density development minimizes environmental ‘footprint’
• Proximity to public transit and other alternative forms of transportation, including bike paths, reduces dependence on cars
• Projects that respect natural ecosystems, promote parks and green spaces, and use natural materials and resources from local sources, help to protect the environment

More and more people and business owners and operators are realizing that the choices they make
have a lasting and profound impact on the environment and the health and well-being of their employees
and customers.

As is demonstrated through our work on Downtown Markham – the largest LEED development in
North America – The Remington Group is committed to sustainable development because it enhances
the quality of our product.
