Green Building Program

Green Building Program

With 14 Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified projects, UCalgary is a Canadian leader in high performance green buildings.

The University of Calgary has two projects currently pursuing the Canada Green Building Council’s (CaGBC) new Zero Carbon Building standard: the MacKimmie Complex Redevelopment and Mathison Hall.

Mathison Hall

Mathison Hall

When it opens in 2022, Mathison Hall will offer business students a state-of-the-art learning environment, provide much-needed classroom space and propel the Haskayne School of business to the next level. This project is striving to meet the requirements of the CaGBCs Zero Carbon Building Standard and LEED Platinum certification for Building Design and Construction.



Facilities provides an extensive list of services to the campus community, from responding to building issues and managing construction/renovation projects; to caretaking, real estate inquiries, recycling and more.
