Building a sustainable community includes setting high standards for UBC’s residential developments. 

UBC designed REAP to guide the development of all residential buildings planned for the UBC Vancouver campus. REAP is unique amongst green building rating systems, since it can be applied to both low and high-rise buildings.

UBC's Vancouver campus has 35 REAP Gold residential buildings.

Compared to standard residential buildings, REAP ensures lower consumption of water, energy and resources, and higher-quality indoor environments and construction practices. REAP building standards also reduce the environmental impact on both the building site and the community.
