Single-family housing area
A sustainable development is at the heart of the Brossard-sur-le-parc project. The construction will be subject to high levels of requirements and will have to meet environmental standards. Buyers will be required to commit to an environmentally conscious development guide created in collaboration with the City of Brossard. The main environmental requirements for the sector are:
All residential units will need to be equipped with the wiring required for the installation of a Level 2 electric vehicle charging station.
Reducing energy consumption
All housing units must be Novoclimat-approved.
Preservation of existing mature trees
The installation of buildings should be planned in such a way as to preserve, as much possible, existing mature trees.
Sustainable water management
The supply of rainwater to the municipal sewer should be minimized by promoting in situ retention;
The drainage slope of the backyard of the adjacent lots to the Grand Parc Urbain must be oriented towards the park.
Irrigation systems must be fed by recycled rainwater.
Plumbing equipment should help reduce drinking water consumption by at least 20%.
Reducing heat islands
Porous asphalt or permeable paving for the development of driveways and parking lots should be favoured;
The paving of driveways and parking lots should encourage the use of light colours (grey, beige, etc.) and/or be shaded to limit the formation of heat islands;
Construction waste management
Each contractor will be required to develop a construction waste management plan so that recyclable waste is sorted and sent to a recovery center.
