NATURE’S AIR PURIFIER

GREEN WALLS

Living Walls add more than just beautiful colour and texture to our lobby environment. They provide much needed natural air purification to improve indoor air quality.

Our spectacular lobby is blooming with lush green plant life. As impressive as they look, all four 31 ft tall Living Walls are hard at work, actively using the natural strength of nature’s own purification processes. They significantly improve indoor air quality and the performance of HVAC systems. Planted with a range of fauna specifically selected to fit the environment and optimize the removal of indoor air contaminants.

Our system is essentially vertical hydroponics. Water from a basin is lifted by a pump system to the top, and flows back through the interior of the plant wall, circulating through a closed loop.

RESPONSIBLE PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

DESTINATION FOREVERGREEN

At BentallGreenOak our foundation is service and we have been working hard to improve the environmental and social performance of the buildings we manage. This hard work has manifested into our corporate responsibility platform entitled ForeverGreen.

150 King West has made commitments to the following core components:

  • Healthy workplaces;
  • Energy efficiency and carbon emission reductions;
  • Waste diversion; and
  • Water conservation.

150 King West is furthering our ForeverGreen commitment by providing our tenants with resources to support your organization’s Green Team or tenant committee, help you build awareness, and identify priority projects in order to make your workplace a clean, green and more enjoyable space to work.

Destination ForeverGreen has been a wonderful journey, but unfortunately the platform expired on January 31, 2017.

That being said, BentallGreenOak’s ForeverGreen program and commitment to sustainability will continue to evolve and we will continue to encourage each of you to join us along the way. Embedding sustainability into our corporate culture and building operations remains a key priority for BentallGreenOak.

Thank you for supporting Destination ForeverGreen!
