EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 6, 2013) - Canderel is proud to announce that Compass Place, located in Edmonton, has been granted BOMA BESt, Level 1 Certification. The property, which is owned by Canderel and managed by Humford Management Inc., has fulfilled all of the BOMA Go Green Best Practices.

A number of measures have been implemented at Compass Place to reduce the building's environmental footprint. Energy efficiency measures include the installation of new boilers and chillers, a lighting retrofit and the implementation of lighting motion-detectors in washrooms. In addition, low-flow toilets, urinals, faucets and fixtures are installed throughout the property and an office recycling program is in place to divert paper, cardboard, glass, plastic and metal away from landfill.

"This achievement is a testament to the work that Canderel has undertaken with Humford Management Inc. to establish sustainable practices at Compass Place," said Bryce Margetts, Vice-President, Western Canada. "The BOMA BESt certification process provides Canderel with an efficient tool with which to assess building sustainability performance and to identify opportunities for improvement. Since acquiring the property in 2012, we have invested in efficiency upgrades, implemented an energy, water and greenhouse gas emissions tracking program and have developed a number of environmental policies and procedures to ensure that sustainable practices are employed moving forward."
