Avi Urban Wins Calgary Award

The City of Calgary presented 16 awards to recipients at the 2012 Calgary Awards on Wednesday, June 12, 2013, and we are so excited to announce that Avi Urban was awarded the Calgary Award for Corporate Environmental Achievement.

The Calgary Awards is The City of Calgary’s official citizen recognition program celebrating Calgarians and local organizations for their outstanding achievements and significant contributions for improving the quality of life in Calgary. Mayor Nenshi and Members of City Council recognized recipients at the ceremony.

Avi Urban was honoured for our work in our inner-city townhome development of Victoria Cross, receiving the Corporate Environmental Achievement Award which recognizes a Calgary business for innovative and/or exemplary environmental conduct.

The Built Green certified homes in Victoria Cross exceed the LEED ND (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Neighbourhood Development) requirements and utilize a highly innovative and custom designed storm water management system.

The design strategy for this development required the integration of storm water management within the landscaping to create a low impact development, in order to benefit the long term sustainability of the Currie Barracks community.

“We are honoured to be recognized for our ongoing collaboration and dedication in working with The City of Calgary on establishing industry precedence for environmental innovation,” shares Charron Ungar, president of Avi Urban.  “Our homeowners can be proud that they are doing their part to help the environment within our communities.”
