Sustainable Site Design – Site Location, Neighbourhood and Connections
Intensifying the current area to encourage the development of spaces that will make use of existing infrastructure, promote a walkable development, be located near services as well as focusing on energy and water resource are the goals for 2089 W 43rd Avenue. The property is a previously developed site that will make use of transit services for connections to Downtown and the rest of Vancouver.
The site of 2089 W 43rd Avenue is located in a developing urban core, with optimum connectivity to pedestrian, bicycle and public transit options. Within a 400m radius there are three different bus lines which provide connection to the rest of Vancouver. Being located in proximity of public transportation, East Boulevard and West 43rd Avenue promotes the use of these services to its occupants. This affords the proposed development a distinct advantage for carless commuters.
Access to Nature
The strength of 2089 W 43rd Avenue is its ability to provide an element of environmental connectivity to the city, by promoting pedestrian and transit orientated access, as well as being located central to a number of access points to nature.
Low Carbon Energy Supply
To maximize the envelope efficiency of the building, the project teams have designed the building to help manage solar heat gains through the exterior glazing while also retaining energy to maintain thermal comfort. In addition to a high efficiency envelope, the development will further reduce energy and carbon emissions through a high efficiency HVAC design.
The Indoor Environment
The indoor air will be filtered using best quality filtration and a building flush-out will be considered before occupancy to maintain the highest quality air for building occupants. To further improve the indoor air quality of the building, best practices will be implemented during construction to ensure clean air quality for the future residents of the building, and interior finishes and coating will be preferred products to limit the quantities of harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) released after construction.
