Industrial Training and Technology Centre strikes LEED Gold – TRU Newsroom

TRU’s Industrial Training and Technology Centre (ITTC) has been recognized with Gold certification by the Leadership Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Canada Rating System. LEED-certified buildings reduce impacts on the environment and are more energy efficient. The facility’s exceptional sustainability is another step toward the university’s goal to achieve carbon-neutral status by 2030. 

Warren Asuchak, Associate Vice-President of Campus Infrastructure, Sustainability and Ancillary Services, and Dillon Alexandre, Manager of Facilities and Capital Projects, led a rigorous process to pursue LEED Gold. To achieve this distinguished rating, TRU had to ensure the new ITTC building would significantly reduce the use of energy, water and other resources. 

Achieving LEED Gold demonstrates TRU’s ongoing commitment to being a world leader in sustainability initiatives. The Student Union Building and the Brown Family House of Learning were also both built to LEED Gold standards. 

Sustainability is one of the core values of the university’s new vision statement, encouraging a culture within and beyond the university community that takes action now for the well-being of the planet and future generations. 

“We are proud to achieve LEED Gold certification of the ITTC building. This certification demonstrates that we are a leader in sustainable buildings, which is one part of the university’s overall commitment to sustainability, and I look forward to more TRU buildings receiving LEED certification in the years to come,” said Asuchak 

As part of its vision, TRU aims to engage the TRU community with sustainability events and projects, such as this LEED certification process.
