Conexus Arts Centre Environmental Certification Another Step in Climate Change Plan

Released on June 22, 2018

The Government of Saskatchewan continues to take action on climate change with the addition of a new environmental certification for the Conexus Arts Centre building.

The well-known Regina venue for concerts, events and meetings has earned a BOMA BEST (Building Owners and Managers Association Building Environmental Standards) silver certification for its excellence in environmental performance and management.

Increasing the number of publicly-owned buildings with sustainability certifications is just one part of government’s climate change plan, Prairie Resilience: A Made-in-Saskatchewan Climate Change Strategy.  There are now 41 government buildings with this certification, up from four in 2007.

“We are very pleased to add the Conexus Arts Centre to our growing list of certified sustainable government buildings,” Central Services Minister Ken Cheveldayoff said.  “It’s a validation of the Government of Saskatchewan’s commitment to reduce its footprint and preserve the environment for future generations.”

The Conexus Arts Centre scored especially well on its low energy usage, which is 58 per cent less than equivalent buildings in Canada.  The facility also boasts superior air handling controls which provide ventilation as needed, an upgrade of select lighting fixtures to LED for a 70 per cent increase in efficiency over older ones, and a reduction in water usage due to the installation of low flush fixtures in parts of the facility.

BOMA BEST is the Canadian industry standard for commercial building sustainability certification.  It is a voluntary national program designed to assess the environmental performance and management of existing buildings.  Certifications are based on a wide variety of environmental factors such as energy and water use, air quality, occupants’ comfort, health and wellness, custodial and purchasing practices, and waste management.

With certifications like this one, the Government of Saskatchewan is working to improve sustainability and take action on climate change.
