Blusson Hall is a building as innovative as the faculty it houses, the greenest building on campus and home of Simon Fraser University’s fledgling Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS). Designed by Vancouver-based architects Busby, Perkins and Will, the new building exceeds Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver standards with numerous planet-friendly features such as a green (planted) roof, sustainably harvested wood products, limited use of off-gassing construction materials, storm-water collection for irrigation, radiant-floor heating, abundant natural light and a GSky Pro Wall.
