Green Building

Building a Greener Oakville

In an effort to increase energy efficiency and reduce the town's impact on the environment all new town owned facilities have been designed to integrate sustainable features into their building construction and operations.

Presently, the Town of Oakville has four Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) designed buildings, including:

  • Oakville Transit Facility; LEED Silver Certified
  • North Operations Depot; awaiting certification
  • Sixteen Mile Sports Complex; LEED Gold Certified
  • Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre; LEED Silver Certified

Book a Facility Tour

Green Building Tours are a great way to get an in depth look at the environmentally sustainable features in these buildings. The Town of Oakville offers tours to the public at any of the above-listed LEED facilities.

Sustainable Living – Building a greener Oakville

Sustainable Living – Building a greener Oakville (pdf, 9.7 MB) is the town's first green building book. It profiles over 30 structures in Oakville in the commercial, industrial, residential and institutional sectors that are designed or built to LEED certification or incorporate sustainable and/or green features that reduce their ecological footprint.

The book also includes information on community leadership projects (including sustainable features on buildings, natural landscapes such as Oakville's trail system, LED lighting projects, greenroofs, etc.) and some proposed buildings.
