Société de transport de Montréal (STM)
Canada: LEED®-certified transport centre
Although North America lagged behind Europe for many decades in sustainable building practices, in recent years burgeoning interest in LEED® and other green building rating systems has brought the two continents into closer alignment. In Montreal, Quebec, the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) recently opened a transport center that is expected to earn an LEED® Gold rating. The Stinson Transport Centre, designed by Lemay, will have a smaller environmental footprint than the facility it replaces, even though it is four times the size of its predecessor.
