SSG worked with British Properties Ltd. to incorporate sustainable neighbourhood development considerations throughout the planning phases of the Cypress Village development in North Vancouver. The project included: a precedent review, investigating the best of local sustainable development examples to use as baseline sustainable development design considerations; sustainable neighbourhood design alternatives, assessing the sustainability challenges of the site and the development, and finding the best fit for a variety of sustainability considerations (eg: stormwater design, ecosystem integration, urban agriculture, neighbourhood connectivity, walkability, vehicle treatment, energy systems, waste systems, etc.); sustainable development standards, assessing the proposed development against LEED-ND, EcoDistricts and One Planet Living rating systems; healthy built environment, assessing the alternative design options against residents’ health outcomes; and district energy viability, high-level modelling of the development for its amenability to district energy systems.
