Dalhousie Fitness Centre awarded LEED Gold

The Dalhousie Fitness Centre, designed in association with MJMA (Toronto), has been certified LEED Gold. The project scored on its water efficiency, optimized energy performance, and use of renewable materials, among other sustainable features.

Opened in 2018, the university’s flagship fitness and recreation facility revitalized the existing Dalplex facility to provide its student body, as well as the South End-Halifax community, with enhanced exercise options including a high-performance training centre and multipurpose fitness studios.

In Canada and around the world, LEED is a proven and holistic path to addressing climate change, and to creating buildings that are more resource-efficient, healthy, and resilient. The 57,000-square-foot facility marks a new era for athletics at the university and delivers on Dalhousie's enhanced sustainability mandate.
