Evolving the office

When building our new headquarters in Markham, we planned on making it the most environmentally friendly building possible. With LEED® Gold Certification criteria as our compass, every design decision was made with sustainability in mind.

Features like a heat-reflective roof to help us stay cool, bio swales for natural filtration that keep waste out of the sewer system and irrigation techniques that collect rainwater to keep the grounds looking green keep things running efficiently.
