St. Mary’s Hospital Recognized as 10th Most Environmentally Friendly Hospital Worldwide

St. Mary’s Hospital in Sechelt, BC was recognized as the 10th most environmentally friendly hospital in the world. Targeting LEED Gold status, the facility was designed to foster energy savings of 40 percent – not just in comparison to standard hospital designs, but compared to other facilities that are already LEED Gold certified. Carbon-neutral heating and cooling for St. Mary’s comes by way of 125 boreholes and radiant slabs, while a 19-kilowatt solar array helps to meet electricity requirements.

Designed by Perkins+Will and Farrow Partnership Architects, Integral Group provided mechanical consulting services for this $26 million addition which has been open since March 2013.
