Modernizing Stations – Pickering GO Station

LEED® Gold certified

GO Transit’s Pickering station building has attained the LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification, a first for a GO Transit passenger station building and a transit agency in the GTHA. The building was rehabilitated in 2011 and is now complete with a number of passenger amenities and eco-friendly features:

82% of construction waste diverted from landfill
60% in annual energy savings
50% of electricity the station purchases is from Green-e certified, Canadian, renewable energy sources
45% of water savings per year (about 400,000 litres)
20% of building materials used in construction was manufactured from recycled content
20% of building materials was locally extracted and manufactured
50% of all wood-based construction materials were certified in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
90% of the building’s floor area is exposed to natural light due to the size and number of windows
11 Carbon Dioxide (CO2) monitors
6 permanent grate systems installed at entryways
130 interior and exterior lamps that contain low to no amounts of mercury

This project is just one example of The Big Move in action across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. The Big Move is Metrolinx’s integrated and regional transportation plan.
