The Dockside GREEN Development is a fifteen-acre master-planned community designed to reflect a more responsible approach to the environment. Open, natural and inviting. Everything has been designed to bring people together with the environment. You can live at Dockside Green with a clear conscience knowing you are supporting a community that will enhance the health and well-being of residents and the ecosystems, now and in the future. Dockside Wharf is the first neighbourhood to be complete in 2009, it is at the north end of Dockside Green, Dockside Wharf is where you'll find 'Synergy' (finished in 5-6 months from now). Built around a central plaza, you'll be able to watch neighbours go by from your table at the harbourfront restaurant, pick up fresh bread at the organic bakery or go for a workout in the fitness room. The construction team is hard at work and things are busy. The low-e double glazed windows are up in the 'Synergy' building, which will provide an isolate value that will assist in keeping residences warmer in the Winter and cooler in the Summer. The roof and interior framing is also complete, and the team has begun installing the elevators. The construction of the naturalized creeks and pond system that will run through the entire Dockside Green site is now underway. Designed to bring natural beauty into the community and manage storm and waste water on site, the first sections of the Greenway base have already been placed and compacted. * Designed by award-winning Busby Perkins + Will Architects * Project is targeting (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) LEED Platinum certification on building. The Developer has agreed to a financial penalty to the City if Platinum certification is not achieved. Dockside Green will be the first complete community ever to accomplish this standard. * Construction in mid-rise towers will consist of concrete and steel, including seven inch thick solid reinforced concrete floors. * Energy efficient building design offers 50 to 60 per cent energy savings * 100 per cent fresh air system with heat recovery ventilator * Over-height ceiling in most living areas * Thick, insulated acoustically engineered walls between suites * Low VOC paint-finishes, and water based sealants and adhesives for a healthy indoor environment...and so much more! * Warranty includes 10-year structural defects coverage, 5- year envelope coverage and 2-year limited materials and labour coverage.
Dockside GREEN - The future of sustainable design. Overlooking Victoria's prestigious harbour Dockside Green is a visionary development at the forefront of global urban planning. It will be a unique urban harbourfront community made up of three distinct neighbourhoods. As a LEED Platinum targeted community, every neighbourhood is created around the principles of smart growth, green building and sustainable community design emphasizing beauty.
Dockside GREEN/Synergy's interiors feature environmentally friendly materials and design that promote healthy living and offer cost-savings to residents. Everyone always ends up in the kitchen at any dinner party so they have taken the liberty of designing a space that allows for maximum flexibility and openness. The bathroom is designed with an organic approach, Synergy's bathrooms offer a spa-like feel with natural colours and recycled materials like glass accents...plus imported large scale italian porcelain tile.
Below is an article that was in the Daily Victoria Newspaper 'Times Colonist':

Dockside Green residents, who start moving into their homes next spring, will be able to track and change their energy, heat and water use as well as their carbon footprint, thanks to the installation of a Victoria-made monitoring device.
Reliable Controls MACH-stat system, which is being installed in two Dockside buildings and will eventually be in place throughout the $600-million, 1,000-unit development, will allow residents to keep a close eye on their consumption.
The idea of the monitor aligns with the goals of Dockside, which has been designed to minimize its environmental footprint.
“In our research we found when you put meters in suites that measure hot water, cold water, heat and electricity, when you give people real information, they tend to use less”, said Joe Van Belleghem, Dockside co-developer. “This allows them to compare what they are using one day to the next or one month to the next. And we’ve taken the technology and innovated and modified it so it could also show residents how much carbon they are saving as well.”
Van Belleghem says the device is much more than just the newest piece of environmental technology as there is also a clear economic benefit, especially if a pilot project undertaken by B.C. Hydro to study variable rate pricing is adopted on a larger scale.
Hydro could send messages over the meters saying, “We are in peak energy times and if you don’t use your dryer right now there will be a savings to you”, he offered as an example. Dockside is in discussions with Hydro to be included in an expanded pilot project, Van Belleghem said.
The monitors can also be programmed from remote locations, meaning residents will be able to log on to the Internet from anywhere in the world and manipulate the heat and energy use in their suites.
It’s a feedback tool that should hopefully change peoples behaviours, that’s the biggest strength of it, said Joe LeRoy, controls division manager at Houle Electric, which customized Reliable’s system for the development. If you had your electricity meter at your kitchen table you would be a lot more cognizant of your power demands because it’s right there.
The system Dockside is installing costs about $2,000 per suite. LeRoy said if a homeowner wants to add it to a house, the one-time expense would depend on size and how complex a system is installed.
The typical homeowner would be looking at spending between $2,000 and $3,000 at Houle, which sells Reliables systems.
Dockside is also trumpeting the fact that the technology was developed locally by Reliable Controls, which Van Belleghem argues is part of the sustainability message.
When you do things that makes sense for the environment, the outcomes are often economic wins to residents, but if we start approaching things from a sustainability perspective of supporting our local business, this is good for the local economy and the province, he said.
