City of Vancouver National Works Yard

The City of Vancouver's old maintenance yards were scattered around the City with outdated, inadequate facilities. The National Works Yard has consolidated a number of the City's operations providing improved coordination among staff and resources. The new yard supports the City's commitment to providing a safe and efficient transportation system that supports all modes of travel. In the design of the new National Yard, a commitment was made to make it a sustainable facility that supports a sustainable transportation system. As the City's first LEED(TM) building, it is expected to achieve a Gold rating. The LEED(TM) Green Building Rating System defines "green buildings" by establishing a common standard of measurement. This project was submitted as an entry for the Transportation Association of Canada's Environmental Achievement Award. For the covering abstract of this conference see ITRD number E211395.
