Canadian Architect Highlights $12.2 million renovation of Hamilton’s Valley Park Library
Originally built 40 years ago, Valley Park was transformed from both a functional and sustainability perspective. A more sustainable future was the vision of the Valley Park Community Centre renovation and library addition, with an ambitious goal to reduce GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions by 40 per cent, the highest carbon emission reduction target in the city to date.
“One of the most exciting ways in which libraries are evolving is how community spaces can be used as an educational tool to demonstrate sustainable design leadership. Public spaces, especially those focused on learning, should set an example for increasing sustainable practices in our communities,” says Drew Hauser, director of design and & business development at mcCallumSather.
