Kudos EIA! First LEED® Gold Certification for an Airport Terminal in Canada

[ January 29, 2016   //   ]

Edmonton International Airport (EIA) in Alberta, Canada, has been awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Gold certification for the South Terminal Domestic/International/Transborder Expansion and LEED® Gold certification for the new Central Tower.

LEED® is a certification achieved through independent review of design, construction, operation and maintenance practices, which is used by 150 countries and is also recognized by the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC).

This is the first LEED® Gold certification for an airport terminal in Canada.

Completed in 2012, the EIA terminal building expansion created maximum system flexibility to accommodate evolving airport requirements while achieving LEED® Gold certification. Many measures were incorporated, including such sustainable innovations as rain water storage cisterns, solar water heating, sensor controlled general lighting, wood structural components in the form of king post trusses, displacement ventilation and the first living wall in an airport terminal building.
