Green Building from Ventana
Over the last five years, Ventana has worked on more than 60 green building projects and successfully completed both LEED® projects and green building projects ranging in size from $3 million to $55+ million. We are a member of both the Canada Green Building Council and BuiltGreen associations.
We’ve completed a number of projects that have met the targeted level of certification, as well as one project that recently exceeded the level it was targeting. We also started our first BuiltGreen® project in 2014 and will continue to add to our BuiltGreen® portfolio over time. This experience helps us assist clients who want to incorporate green building elements into their projects without pursuing formal certification.
A large number of both our pre-construction and operations teams have LEED® accreditation, so we can provide sustainable strategic planning services for our clients as well as effectively manage construction on LEED® projects.

We also provide the administrative requirements associated with LEED and BuiltGreen projects, working with consultants and sub-trades to manage the paperwork for every LEED or BuiltGreen project, as well as the document submission process for certification.
It’s not just about following guidelines, however. We believe in environmental responsibility for all of our projects, and implement erosion and sediment control guidelines, waste recycling guidelines, low volatile organic compound (VOC) guidelines and indoor air quality guidelines on every Ventana job site.
Beyond our site-specific green building initiatives, Ventana has implemented a number of environmentally responsible measures at our corporate office, including comprehensive waste paper recycling, using FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) paper for printing, installing LED lighting fixtures and low-flow toilet fixtures throughout the building and developing a kitchen waste recycling program.
