Rick Hansen was in St. John’s on behalf of the Rick Hansen Foundation to present awards to Husky Energy and East Port Properties as the first in Newfoundland and Labrador building to achieve the Accessibility Certified Gold rating. The tenants, building owners and managers worked together to create real change. Husky and 351 Water St were encouraged to have their sites rated for accessibility through a challenge led by the BOMA Canada (Building Owners and Managers Association Canada). Owned by TD Greystone Managed Investments and managed by East Port Properties Ltd., 351 Water St. provided improved accessibility within the building, which benefited over 555 people who work there each day as well as many visitors. Accessibility Features include use of natural lighting, doors with power operators on them, ergonomic workstations, various seating arrangements and more.
