CORNER BROOK, N.L.

With a ground-source heat pump, locally-sourced building materials, high-efficiency lighting, water conservation systems and a green roof, Corner Brook City Hall is the first office building in Newfoundland and Labrador to receive LEED Silver certification.

“The City of Corner Brook is proud to stand as a leader in this field. When we undertook the challenge of building a new City Hall, we chose to set an example for others in our community and across the province. It is our hope that Corner Brook City Hall will be the first of many LEED certified public buildings across our province,” said Corner Brook mayor Charles Pender in a statement.

The 10,000-square-metre facility opened in 2011 and houses council chambers, office space for city staff along with the Corner Brook Museum and the public library.

The provincial government contributed approximately $15 million toward the project, while the City of Corner Brook provided approximately $7 million.

The project also received $895,100 from the Newfoundland and Labrador Green Fund to help make the facility environmentally-friendly and achieve LEED.
