Laboratory in Hamilton by Diamond Schmitt Architects wins AIA Top Ten Green project award


The CANMET Materials Technology Laboratory (LEED Platinum-certified) in Hamilton, Ontario by Diamond Schmitt Architects was announced as a winner in the American Institute of Architects’ Committee on the Environment Top Ten Green projects for 2015. This is the only Canadian project to receive this distinction for 2015.

Natural Resources Canada relocated its CANMET Materials Technology Laboratory (MTL) from Ottawa to Hamilton to be closer to the steel and manufacturing sectors it serves through metallurgical research and testing. It saw the opportunity to take a giant leap forward and become a showpiece of sustainable design.
