Manitoba Hydro Place stands apart as the first of the next generation of sustainable buildings that use simple, time-tested and repeatable concepts in conjunction with science and technology to achieve a “living building” that interprets and reacts to its physical environment. The building was designed to be responsive to the client’s vision and scope while optimizing the use of passive free energy by establishing ‘communication’ between the inner and outer world, all without compromise to human comfort in a climate that is noted for its wide range of weather conditions and temperature swings. Every feature of Manitoba Hydro Place is integrated to achieve an unprecedented 60% energy savings over a typical large office tower. Designed to LEED® Gold standards but targeting LEED® Platinum, the 64,000 square metres (M²) or 690,000 square feet, 22-story sustainable headquarters will be the largest office building in Winnipeg.
