To enhance the federal government’s presence in the City of Yellowknife, a plan for a Government of Canada Building was put into place in 2002. Using LEED® guidelines, the building provides healthy and energy efficient components that align within a typical Yellowknife commercial building construction budget. Williams provided structural and mechanical engineering design services for the first North of 60 LEED® Canada-Gold certified office building.
