West Building, Vancouver Convention Centre (view from inside)

West Building, Vancouver Convention Centre (view from inside)

The West Building features a "living roof" with native plants, and an apiary.

The living roof, seawater heating and cooling, on-site water treatment and fish habitat built into the foundation of the West Building make it one of the greenest convention centres in the world. The Centre recycles an average of 180,000 kilograms of materials annually, nearly half of the total volume of waste generated. It avoids canned goods, disposable utensils and dishes, and donates leftover food to local charities.
