Henriquez Partners Architects Awarded Lieutenant Governor of BC Medal

TELUS Garden Receives the Most Significant Architectural Award for BC Architects in Canada and Abroad

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 20, 2016) - Continuing its award-winning streak, TELUS Garden was recognized with a prestigious Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia Medal in Architecture. This medal recognizes excellence in completed architectural projects designed by BC Architects.

An expert jury acknowledged Henriquez Partners Architects to have shown excellence in creativity, context, sustainability, good business, and legacy. The award, administered by the Architectural Institute of BC, was accepted by the Henriquez Partners design team, on behalf of TELUS and Westbank Corp.

"The goal: to design an office building to inspire its occupants, animate Georgia Street, and set a new standard for sustainable workplace design in North America," shares HPA Partner, Gregory Henriquez.

The TELUS development features a 22-storey signature office tower in Vancouver BC, the first building in Canada built to have achieved the 2009 Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum standard and a 47-storey residential tower targeting LEED Gold standard. This landmark development reinforces TELUS's commitment to the City of Vancouver, making a significant contribution to the city's goal of becoming the greenest city in the world. The development features 10,000 square feet of green roofs providing organic produce for local restaurants, two elevated roof forests, local artwork and light displays. TELUS Garden boasts half a million square feet of new office space for multiple tenants and 424 new residential units, all setting new standards for environmental sustainability.

TELUS Garden has radically transformed an aging block of downtown Vancouver into a future friendly community fusing beauty, functionality and environmental stewardship. It is one of the most technologically and environmentally-advanced sites of commerce, employment, and residence in the world and with local and international recognition.
