it's nice to know they're always looking out for our interests isn't it...

on the other hand, we can still duck out the back door and walk straight into the casino without putting our coats on.

two vices under the same roof as the rec centre - the very heavens are probably in an uproar.

A huge accomplishment and congratulations!

Rogers Place achieves LEED® Silver certification

December 6, 2017

The City of Edmonton, with Oilers Entertainment Group, is pleased to announce Rogers Place has received LEED® Silver certification.

“The City of Edmonton aims to be a national leader in setting and achieving the highest standards of environmental preservation and sustainability,” said Councillor Bev Esslinger. “This certification not only helps us reach this goal but positively impacts the health, quality of life and resiliency of our citizens and city.”

The City of Edmonton has a sustainable building policy that mandates the construction of all new buildings to strive for LEED Silver certification as a minimum requirement. Planning, design and construction of the arena and adjacent facilities followed LEED requirements throughout the process and achieved certification through the LEED goals of development density, community connectivity and alternative transportation.

“Congratulations to the City of Edmonton and the project team involved in this LEED Silver certification for Rogers Place Arena,” said Thomas Mueller, President and CEO of the Canada Green Building Council. “Designing and building a facility of this magnitude to meet rigorous green building standards is an ambitious undertaking, but one with the potential to have a positive impact on visitors, where they can see sustainability in action. This certification sets a strong example for other large venues in Canada that every building can achieve superior environmental performance.”

Rogers Place is the first NHL facility in Canada built to the LEED Silver certification requirements, demonstrating efficient systems for lighting, heating, cooling and ventilation in building design. The commitment to reduce the building’s environmental impact continues into operations of the facility. Oilers Entertainment Group is a member of the Green Sports Alliance and has embraced green operations including cleaning, education and food waste handling.

“Oilers Entertainment Group is a strong advocate for environmental design and operation. We want to acknowledge that, from the very beginning, the City of Edmonton took a lead role in ensuring Rogers Place was built to LEED Silver standards,” said Susan Darrington, Executive Vice President, Rogers Place. “We also want to acknowledge the many committed staff at OEG who contributed to this milestone. We are all so very proud of the accomplishment.”

LEED® Certified buildings meet one of the highest environmental performance standards in the world, assessed by site development, water efficiency, energy efficiency, material selection, indoor air quality and innovation in design.

About LEED® Certification
LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized system based on a range of principles and practices that reduce the environmental impact linked to the construction and operation of green buildings. Derived from LEED®, LEED®-NC is a rating system that addresses New Constructions. The program involves the comprehensive evaluation of a broad set of criteria organized into six main credit categories aimed at producing "a high-performance ecological building”.

Watched tonight's debacle from the Sky Lounge. It's actually quite a comfortable atmosphere. The complementary coat check and in-seat drink service are very nice touches, and a lineup-less shitter was even more appreciated. The buffet was rather sparse and a bit on the meh side. Once the game was over and the fireworks show completed, the curtains were drawn, the nightclub lighting switched on, the DJ fired up his rig and the place filled up with more Oilers and Jets fans. I confirmed with the staff there that any ticket holder can now get into the Sky Lounge after the game if it's a Thursday - Saturday night game; I think last season some of you said it was only for those who had Sky Lounge tix. The post-game club atmosphere was not bad but not really enticing enough to stick around for 4 hours. Maybe if it was a later game then staying until the end of NYE would have been a viable option.

In 1964 they contemplated a location in Rossdale. Also notice 'Marina' and 'AB College residences'.

The Heritage Room at the library used to contain many maps if the different locations proposed for the arena project on the flats. Most of them showed the arena being a bit further southeast towards the residential area which was expected to be flattened for parkland at the time... My favourite plan was the CN Lands one with the Pylon, the double-wing city-block long hotel tower and the arena being built between 104 and 105 St... Someone ought to bring that plan to life!
