Earth Rangers Centre for Sustainable Technology

 

What is Earth Rangers?

Earth Rangers is a non-profit Kids’ Conservation Organization that educates children about biodiversity, conservation, and sustainability, along with their growing importance in today’s society.

The organization spearheads their message by integrating eco-friendly technologies into their own headquarters in Woodbridge Ontario. The Earth Rangers Centre (ERC) was Certified LEED® Gold for New Construction in 2006 and Platinum under LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance in 2012. The ERC is currently the highest rated building in Canada and the facility operates at less than 9 kWh per square foot, using nearly 90% less energy than other buildings of its size.

The ERC was able to achieve this level of sustainability by installing cutting edge technologies with a state of the art infrastructure throughout the building. In order to safeguard their innovative assets, the Earth Rangers relied on Firestone to provide a sustainable, low maintenance, cool roofing solution – an UltraPly TPO Roofing System.

It’s very important for Earth Ragers Centre to choose a product that envrionemtnally friendly. This product was chosen because it’s a fully adhered system, it’s non-toxic and non-hazardous, and is fully recycable at the end of it’s life.” – Gavin Yeung – Manager, Earth Rangers Centre on Firestone UltraPly TPO.
