Proment Corp. has announced that its Vistal II highrise building in Montreal, Que. has been certified LEED Gold by the Canada Green Building Council, following on the heels of the Vistal I tower which received the same certification in 2011. 

Projects become LEED certified by earning points in six green building categories: sustainable site, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and operations design and innovation.

The condominium association at Le Vistal has hired an engineer to ensure that all mechanical and geothermal equipment remains in good working order to ensure projected energy savings. Vistal I and Vistal II boast energy bills that are 35 per cent lower, as well as superior indoor air quality with a minimal presence of contaminants. 

Proment is currently working on the Pointe-Nord development, a LEED gold waterfront community on Nun’s Island near downtown Montreal.
