he Ottawa Based office of Canada Council for the Arts is located in Performance Court at 150 Elgin Street. The 360,000 square foot LEED Gold, Class A Certified office tower is located in the core of Ottawa’s business district (the EcoDistrict). The building was award winning from its inception.
Canada Council chose Performance Court to house their Ottawa Office and took their commitment to sustainability one step further, they achieved Gold LEED Interior Certification. Council’s stated values were found to connect to many aspects of the LEED points system making the decision easy. While working with their employees, the Council created plans to improve the office space. Many aspects of the original office were refurbished and recycled to be used in the new office space.
The beautiful office space provides each employee with a view to the exterior of the building and allowed for natural light in through open vistas. The office also has low VOC (volatile organic compounds) finishes as well as systems that provide climate comfort.
