Self-Storage Development Earns Net-Zero Carbon Certification
A Vancouver-area project is the first self-storage development to earn a Net-zero Carbon Certification from the Canada Green Building Council.
Advanced Self-Storage and Nicola Wealth Real Estate Development have partnered on the Maple Meadows property located in Maple Ridge, B.C.
“Maple Meadows represents a significant achievement in our portfolio, showcasing our ability to lead and execute innovative projects that align with our values and meet high sustainability standards,” said Josh Anderson, NWRED’s vice-president of development.
The certification positions Maple Meadows as a “trailblazing example of sustainable construction in the Canadian self-storage space, showcasing its dedication to environmental responsibility,” NWRED added.
The development’s sustainable features include all-electric systems, high-efficiency air-source heat pumps, an 82.5% efficient energy-recovery ventilation system and 100-kilowatt rooftop solar PV panels that provide 100% of annual operational energy.
