Kitsilano Neighbourhood House Awarded LEED Gold

Kitsilano Neighbourhood House (Kits House) in Vancouver, B.C. has been awarded LEED Gold Certification by the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC). We would like to congratulate Kits House and the rest of the design and construction team on this accomplishment.

 

The Kitsilano Neighbourhood House is a registered non-profit charitable organization and a member of the Association of Neighbourhood Houses of British Columbia. A variety of services are provided by Kits House, including childcare, seniors’ services, and numerous community programs and events. The redevelopment of Kits House features fifteen units of new seniors housing, infilled between the existing Community Hall and Heritage House. Both the Community Hall and Heritage House have undergone renovations, providing more comfortable and flexible spaces for their community uses and improving energy efficiency and green building performance.
