The four-story Jean Canfield Government of Canada Building is one of the most environmentally friendly buildings ever constructed by public works and Government Services Canada. The project team closed the gaps between sustainability, architecture and engineering by taking an integrated design approach. Sustainable design principles are incorporated in all building features.
"Established more than a century ago, the six-million-acre Adirondack Park, a mix of public and private lands roughly the size of Vermont, with huge stretches of wilderness has grown ever more remarkable as development has fundamentally altered much of the Northeast." The museum "marries stunning design, paying homage to the great-camp vernacular with local stone and timber, and an educational philosophy that seeks to inject science with sizzle through high-tech multisensory exhibitions."
