Corner Brook City Hall was completed and opened in August 2011.
The project features a green roof, which reduces the heat island effect of the building and mitigates storm water runoff. There is also a geothermal heating system, which saves approximately 496 metric tons of greenhouse gas annually, low flow plumbing fixtures and a rainwater collection system, which contribute to water conservation. Additionally the building has low “E” glazed windows, which maximize the amount of natural light within the building and increase insulation, resulting in reduced energy consumption.
The City of Corner Brook has made a commitment to be a leader in sustainability, and achieving the LEED Silver standard was seen as a way to set an example for others in our community and across the province. We also recognized the opportunity to achieve significant operational cost savings through energy efficiency and sustainable practices required to meet the standards.
