Glenmore Landfill Office Complex

Completed: 2014
Developer: City of Kelowna
Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, BC

The City of Kelowna Glenmore Landfill Administration Building serves as offices for administration staff and a training suite for all staff. A visitor component provides outreach to educate school groups and the general public on the work undertaken at the landfill site, and illustrate the benefits of recycling both on the global scale environmentally, and to the local community financially. The design aims to reduce the energy use of the building by more than 40 per cent over current standard building practices. By adopting conservation and ‘low tech’ passive capture solutions, the building will greatly reduce overall energy, water and resources demands.
