    Historic Sustainability: LEED CI, Retail Design and a Toronto Landmark (1 ARIDO CEU)

    This tour is complimentary for IDC members courtesy of Leon's.

    Leon’s at the John Street Roundhouse is a new urban concept store for one of Canada’s oldest retailers.  A $25 million rejuvenation of the Roundhouse area in downtown Toronto led to the opportunity for Leon’s to create a signature retail store in this unique location, originally built in the 1920s to house trains for the Canadian Pacific Railway.  In addition to preserving heritage features including the original wooden beams, windows and retired train tracks of the semi-circular structure, Leon’s approached Green Reason to work with them to create a sustainable program for the project.  As LEED consultant, Green Reason’s goal was to ensure that the rejuvenation was completed to LEED standards for building sustainability, without altering or compromising its heritage features. By assembling the right team, Leon’s first urban furniture and appliance store was completed using sustainable design and construction practices, while also showcasing the Roundhouse, its view of Toronto’s skyline and the store’s products.  Join Alan Murphy, founding principal and Tina Sutton, sustainability project manager from Green Reason, as they discuss the challenges, opportunities, and successes of applying the LEED-CI rating system to what former Toronto Mayor David Miller called “…the most extraordinary, adaptive reuse of a heritage building, probably in Canada.”

    Tour Leaders:

    Alan Murphy, MRAIC, LEED AP BD+C
    Alan’s interest in green building began when he co-designed Club Monaco's new corporate offices in 1998, which incorporated one of the earliest living/breathing walls constructed within an office environment.  Recognizing his passion and an industry ready to create healthier surroundings, reduce energy costs, and minimize impact on the environment, Alan founded Green Reason in 2007 as an alternative to the current status quo in sustainable consulting for buildings and interiors.  Since then, he worked with a wide range of clients in sustainable project management and LEED consulting on projects that range from national retail accounts to commercial buildings to interior projects, including more than 30 LEED registered or certified projects to date.

    Tina Sutton, LEED AP BD+C
    Tina has been working with LEED rating systems since 2008 and currently manages all of Green Reason’s LEED projects.  As an integral part of each project team, she works with design and construction professionals to ensure sustainability goals are achieved without compromising other project deliverables.  Applying creative problem-solving and attention to detail, she has successfully worked with a range of LEED rating systems on a variety of new builds and adaptive reuse projects.
