Morguard Wins race2reduce CREST Awards

​Morguard is pleased to announce that several of our properties have been recognized by the race2reduce CREST Awards for Climate Leadership. These awards are given by BOMA Toronto to promote operational excellence and emission reduction through improved building performance, innovation and unprecedented collaboration between building owners, managers, and tenants. Properties are evaluated based on emission reduction through improved building performance and notable collaboration between owners, managers, and tenants.

Two of Ottawa properties won the Performance Leadership Award in Waste and Water management during the third annual Commercial Real Estate Sustainability Trailblazer (CREST), which celebrated its winners in a virtual ceremony in November.

For the past 30 years, the management team at 1601 Telesat Court has been dedicated to its waste management program. Adhering as closely as possible to the 3R’s – reduce, reuse, recycle, this property became one of the first “green buildings”, setting the standard for decades to come. In 2019, the team at 365 March Road worked with the single tenant, Innovapost, to upgrade all of the washroom fixtures to high efficiency for improved water conservation, including hands-free faucets, auto flush toilets, and low flow urinals.
