UBC Hebb Building

December 2020

LEED Gold Certification

The renewal of the UBC Hebb Building has achieved LEED Gold certification through a combination of high-efficiency mechanical and electrical systems, improved glazing, solar shading, and enhanced insulation. By renewing the existing building rather than replacing it with a new one, the use of raw materials, energy inputs, and pollutants was reduced. The renewed building is projected to accrue significant operating energy savings over its lifecycle.
