The low-rise building clad in green-accented curtain wall on the southwest portion of the University of Waterloo’s campus ring road, known as Environment 3 (EV3), is one of Canada’s most innovative and green buildings to date. In fact, it is set to attain LEED Platinum certification – one of a handful of public buildings in Canada to do so.

EV3 is also receiving attention for its unique structure. It is essentially a large four-storey addition, separated into north and south components by a narrow four-storey atrium space. Four storeys of student program space are located to the north, and to the south the existing two-storey EV2 building is topped with two storeys of space for the School of Planning and the School of Environment, Enterprise and Development.
