QUEBEC — It will take two years and nearly $3 million to transform the Royal Bank of Canada''s Montreal headquarters from dimly lit to open and sustainable, according to The Montreal Gazette.
The contractors renovating the 83-year-old building aim to make the historic structure Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified, the article stated.
According to the article, the 22-story building, which was once the tallest skyscraper in the British Empire, is likely to receive LEED certification as early as this fall.
Certification of the building would make it one of a small number of buildings located in a historic district — or designated as a heritage property — to receive LEED certification in Canada, the article noted.
