The RGB Group's latest green residential building project is rising in Ottawa's Glebe community on Third Avenue. A showpiece of sustainable design, this three-storey duplex is aiming for the coveted LEED Platinum designation. But there's more. While many don't know it, Ottawa is rated as one of Canada's most active seismic zones in the country, and thus our newest green building in the Glebe is built to be an "anti-quake" as well as a green building! You can read, watch and listen to the amazing media coverage this project has generated by visiting the News section of this Web site.
With an all-steel frame that is 30% to 40% stronger than even the City of Ottawa's new seismic-maximized building code, the occupants of this duplex should be able to sleep undisturbed through just about any anticipated earthquake activity. It's going to be The Glebe's Green Diefenbunker!
