Green Technology Centre
The Green Technology Centre (GTC) occupies a prominent site at the midway point of the Oceanfront peninsula. Adjacent lots are zoned for education, residential and employment uses. Important design considerations were not just about the building itself, but creating an interface at each edge of the project site that would promote interaction with future development. It was important to create a place that invited public use and opportunities for people to re-discover and explore the oceanfront as it begins its transformation. A primary ambition of the GTC is to promote sustainable strategies and set a precedent that upholds strong core values of the community and the development team. This building signifies the crucial first steps towards integrating a positive urban vision for Squamish.
