Aquilini aims to be one of the most environmentally-friendly developers in Canada and to accomplish this, we have recently added Mr. Bill Aujla to our team.
Bill has extensive experience in sustainable development and facilities management. He previously held a position as General Manager of Real Estate and Facilities Management with the City of Vancouver where he served as the project manager for the Southeast False Creek and Olympic Village development in anticipation of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
As project manager for the Olympic Village, Bill oversaw a team that achieved a LEED Platinum certification, which recognized it as North America’s greenest neighbourhood. LEED is a third party certification program that recognizes performance in five key areas of human and environmental health, including energy efficiency, water efficiency, sustainable site development, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
The Olympic Village features sustainable design including rainwater harvesting, sewer heat recovery, and green roofs. It encompasses Canada’s first residential multi-unit Net Zero Affordable Housing Project, Habitat Island (a man-made island off the west shore of the Village), and the restoration of a heritage building (Salt Building).
