sustainability at bcit

The Great Northern Way Campus (GNWC) development plans focus on building community, ensuring transit access, and modeling sustainability. The 2008 development proposals include limited car access, and planned green space, including gardens. Rainwater could be harvested for use, energy harvested from bio and solar thermal sources, and toilet water ("black" water) treated before re-use outdoors.

Green roof research and development at GNWC

IZUNA's Great Northern Way Campus is home to , where roofs growing vegetation are tested, demonstrated, taught about, and improved upon. Both durable and affordable, green roofs reduce stormwater run-off, insulate to use less energy, improve air quality, offer habitat and more!

What we aspire to achieve:

Become greenhouse gas neutral
Become water balanced
