Kindrachuk Agrey Architecture Achieves LEED Platinum Certification
Kindrachuk Agrey Architecture’s (KAA) Studio has achieved LEED Platinum certification from the Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC). Their space is the first in Saskatchewan to reach the highest level of certification available in the Commercial Interiors category of the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) sustainable design program from the CaGBC.
The certification is the result of an integrative design and construction process based on a “Practice What We Preach” concept that focused on the themes of Context, Collaboration and Sustainability.
Based in one of the youngest and fastest growing cities in Canada, it was important for KAA to create a workplace that embodied a fresh identity and progressive environmental stewardship.
“A healthy workplace that provides choice for the staff was paramount in establishing a strong precedent for professional office design in the province,” said Derek Kindrachuk, Firm Principal.
Planning took advantage of active design principles to create a dynamic workplace while focusing on key sustainable initiatives to reduce the project’s environmental impact.
“Goals were met by planning and intelligent design first, then by technology if necessary,” said Bertrand Bartake, Project Architect.
The media, friends, clients, and public are invited to a come and go event where the project’s features will be showcased and there will be an opportunity to interview the project team members. KAA’s Platinum Party will be held Wednesday October 9th from 4pm to 8pm at Kindrachuk Agrey Architecture 120-616 Main Street East, Saskatoon. A short program will commence at 5:30PM.
