The UniverCity Project at Simon Fraser University is being developed around the “Four Cornerstones of Sustainability” – Environment, Equity, Education and Economy. The community, adjacent to the SFU Burnaby Mountain Campus, has been recognized with many regional, national, and international awards for its innovations in sustainable urban development. To date, more than 1,000 homes have been completed, along with the first phase of the Town Centre.
Jonathan Tinney is the Director of Community Development for the SFU Community Trust. Through the development of UniverCity, Jonathan and the rest of the Trust team are making significant and innovative contributions toward the creation of independent and universal green building standards to ensure a high level of urban design and environmental performance. He is charged with overseeing the Trust’s initiatives to incorporate the development of leading edge planning policy, innovative green building and infrastructure standards, and pioneering community building programs to create a complete and truly sustainable urban community.
