LEED Gold for OPG Visitor Centre
The OPG St. Lawrence Power Development Visitor Centre at the RH Saunders Dam in Cornwall, Ontario has been awarded LEED Gold. This prestigious award for excellence and "Leadership in Engineering and Environmental Design" was bestowed when the much celebrated building achieved a very high score with the Canada Green Building Council.
During the planning stage for the LEED Gold award ceremony and press conference, it was suggested that one of the best ways to educate the public about the consulting, planning, designing and construction process of the much celebrated visitor centre was to produce a short documentary. KAV was asked to interview the lead architect, Rick Taylor, from Genivar and Bruce Burwell of OPG. Their testimonials where combined with a tour of the facility and some archival video and photos the KAV image library.
We also took news photos at the event that were distributed to the media and used in the company's province-wide newsletter.
