Officials to break ground for first LEED-certified office complex in Kirkland

The groundbreaking ceremony for what will be the first LEED-certified building in Kirkland takes place on the construction site near the Merck Canada building, 16750 Trans-Canada Highway on Friday, Nov. 30, at 10 a.m. with Kirkland Mayor John Meaney in attendance. Merck Canada president Cyril Schiever and Broccolini vice-president Roger Plamondon are also scheduled to attend.

The pharmaceutical company will occupy 70 per cent of the $75 million, 300,000-square-foot office complex, which should be completed by the end of 2013.

Construction company Broccolini will adhere to exacting environmental standards that will give the complex its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
