Bridgepoint Active Healthcare was awarded a 2016 Civic Trust Award from the UK based built environment awards program. The LiveRoof green roof was highlighted as one of the key factors in selecting Bridgepoint for the award. In addition to the vegetated roof, a meditative labyrinth, a therapy pool, and windows that provide the bedridden patients unobstructed views were also mentioned as contributing to Bridgepoint’s selection.
Diamond Scmitt Architects, Stantec, KPMB and HDR designed the award winning building. The building is the only award winner from Canada and there were only two other winners throughout North America. In addition to this award, Bridgepoint was awarded a National Healthcare Design Award from the AIA and a Best of Canada Design Awards. To get an aerial view of the project watch this short video.
