Bayview Glen Retrofit Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Plan.
BECC was contracted by Lura Consulting to co-develop a residential retrofit program as part of the Bayview Glen Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Plan (SNAP). The Bayview Glen SNAP is one of several SNAPs developed in the GTA to accelerate the implementation of environmental improvements and urban renewal at the neighbourhood scale
Raise residents awareness of the benefits of sustainable homes/properties;
Facilitate resident uptake of appropriate programs to implement measures;
Provide residents with a sense of belonging to a bigger program and community objectives;
Further SNAP goals for residential energy and water efficiency.
BECC worked closely with the Project Management Team to tailor the program to the unique characteristics and needs of the community. Through a comprehensive community engagement process and detailed analysis, we identified the target audiences, along with the energy and water conservation measures that would have the highest uptake and impact. Based on this, we established appropriate and meaningful targets and ensured they aligned with both the City Markham’s and York Region’s sustainability targets and existing programs. With a solid foundation formed, we developed key metrics to measure program success and enable ongoing improvement.
The Bayview Glen Park design, a key component of the project, was awarded a National Award by the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects for its outstanding work. The award is a testament to the quality of the design. becc is proud to be part of the team’s success.
