Victoria – The Move to Greener Pastures
WATT’s Victoria team recently moved to a new office in mid-town Victoria/Saanich. The new office exemplifies our company’s corporate commitment to sustainability. As a LEED Gold Certified building, the new office has a number of sustainability features including rooftop and storm water harvesting for toilets and plant irrigation; solar water heating; a high efficient water to air HVAC system; LED lighting, and a native planting scheme, among other features.
The new office building also highlights our team’s commitment to sustainable transportation with direct access to multiple frequent transit routes/corridors, on-site bike storage and adjacent shower, and change facilities—all of which are encouraging 80% our staff to travel to work in a more sustainable manner. In addition, we’re proud to announce that our Victoria office now has a business membership with Modo (the local carshare provider). Our membership will allow all staff to use Modo carshare vehicles for business / client meetings, field visits, and other errands—further reducing the need to bring a vehicle to the office.
We’re proud to call this new building our second home!
