Resources and Materials

The Sustainable Condo uses materials and resources efficiently and effectively.
Canada is one of the top five countries in terms of waste generated per person. More than one-third of this waste generation is due to the construction and demolition of our buildings. By disposing of these materials in landfills we are throwing valuable resources away. Building construction worldwide consumes approximately 3 billion tonnes of raw resources each year or 40% of the total global use, depleting natural resources at an unsustainable rate (World Watch Institute Paper 124, 1995). The Sustainable Condo uses materials and resources efficiently and effectively.
