CENTRE FOR INTERACTIVE RESEARCH ON SUSTAINABILITY (CIRS)

2260 West Mall, Point Grey Campus, Vancouver, BC

PWL Partnership Landscape Architects

2008-2011

CIRS was created for researchers and building industry partners who use the facility to assess sustainable building systems, technologies and urban development practices. It is in fact a “living laboratory” for the pursuit of leading edge sustainable and ecological design. With this in mind, the building and landscape include both green roof systems and native plants that restore natural habitat. The project has achieved LEED Platinum Certification, and is targeted for Living Building status and Greenest Building in Canada.
