Red Deer’s provincial building is one of Canada’s biggest and greenest.

The building on 4920 51st St. came in a close second on the Building Owners and Managers Association of Canada’s list of the top five sustainable large buildings.

Large buildings are defined as any building with more than 100,00 square feet of floor space.

The Alberta Infrastructure-owned building scored 93. It was bested by two points by Thunder Bay, Ont.’s provincial building. The building is managed by Edon Property Management.

Red Deer’s building, at 288,192-square-feet ,uses outside air for free cooling in the summer and uses 100 per cent renewable energy. There are also green contracts in place.

The goal of the program is to improve the environmental performance and management of the country’s existing building stock by assessing energy and water use, among other factors.

The ranking was recently published in the Corporate Knights, a paid insert in the Globe and Mail.
