The Sustainable Condo

As the majority of the world population lives today in cities, urban sustainability is becoming the main challenge of the 21st century. The sustainable condo is an educative travelling display that illustrates and promotes leading edge sustainable building design, products, technologies, and systems. It aims at bringing substantial reductions in environmental impacts, energy and resource consumption into the urban residential condominium market without any significant cost increase. Developed by EcoSmart, supported by Western Economic Diversification Canada, designed by Busby and build by Ledcor, the project is the result of an outstanding collaboration effort by government officials, architects, engineers, contractors, manufacturers and suppliers. This project reinforces the position of British Columbia, Canada as a leader in green building design and technologies. The unit was displayed in March 2004 at the Globe 2004 Trade Fair in Vancouver. It is now open to the public at the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) in Vancouver in from August 21, 2004 to September 6, 2004.
