Long overdue for an update

 What a busy few weeks we've been having at Solterre Design with lots of great things happening. Here's a quick peak at a few items: 


Valley Waste Resource Management Office Receives Passive House Certification:

The Valley Waste Resource Management office has recently received its Passive House (Passivhaus) certification, making it the first commercial project in Canada and the largest commercial project in North America to do so.  Natalie Leonard was the Passive House consultant on the project, which was designed by Solterre Design. CBCL Ltd. of Halifax was the mechanical consultant. LEED consulting services were also provided by Solterre Design, and the general contractor was Annapolis Valley-based Roscoe ConstructionFor more information on the Valley Waste Resource Management authority, click here.


Prospect Community Centre Achieves LEED Silver Certification: 

The Prospect Community Centre has recently achieved LEED Silver certification.  DSRA was the project architect and Bird Construction was the General Contractor, while Solterre Design provided LEED consulting services. Congratulations to everyone involved on the project and to HRM for the most recent addition to their LEED certified projects. 


Solterre Crew Goes for (the) Green 


In what is quickly becoming an annual event at the Solterre Office, the crew took part in a late-season golf game at the Briarwood executive course.  Colleen McHugh and Ian Anning shared the top prize (gloating rights) while David Gallaugher narrowly avoided a rogue (head) shot by Ian Campbell (sorry David!).  






Table Tennis Tournament Round 2 

The saga continues with WHW Architects hosting next week's second round of fast-flying action. Joining the fray is a crew from Breakhouse. Updates as to will carry the next title are forthcoming.
