The building designed by BGLA architects and built by Construction Béland & Lapointe integrates unique architectural features including the first structural glass curtain wall built for a commercial project in the province of Quebec.
Quebec City, September 29th, 2015 - Just a little over three years after the start of operations at its new building on rue des Rocailles in Quebec City, Maheu&Maheu just received the LEED® Silver certification from the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC ). This is a higher level than that aimed for in the beginning, the "certified" level, based on the rating system of CaGBC.
The building designed by BGLA architects and built by Construction Béland & Lapointe integrates unique and cutting-edge architectural features. Indeed, the structural glass curtain wall made by IC2 Technologies was the first built for a commercial project in the province of Quebec.
The building has several other features aimed at optimizing energy efficiency including solar panels preheating fresh air and it is equipped with a green roof.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) is a North American set of rating systems for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of green buildings created by the US Green Building Council in 1998. A building can achieve four levels: certified, silver, gold or platinum. The evaluation criteria includes: energy efficiency, water consumption, heating efficiency, use of locally sourced materials and reuse of their surplus.
In addition to reducing the "environmental footprint" of the structure, the certification aims to improve occupant’s well-being and provide better quality of air, water, office ergonomics, access to direct sunlight, etc.
Founded in 1933 in Quebec City, Maheu&Maheu employs 115 people in the provinces of Quebec, Ontario and New Brunswick. It is the third largest pest management company in Canada and the 42nd in North America with a revenue figure exceeding $17 million.
