  • (1888PressRelease) December 11, 2011 - Hollyburn has been a leader in Vancouver property management for 40 years both for providing fine Vancouver apartments for rent and for its environmental leadership. This fall, FortisBC's Service Line Newsletter and a video profiling The Efficient Boiler Program described Hollyburn Properties' green initiatives in detail. Watch the video.

    Hollyburn is a Canadian-owned and operated rental property provider based in beautiful British Columbia, with properties in the most sought-after sectors of Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto. 45 of those premier properties are in three of Vancouver's most popular districts: Vancouver's North Shore, West End, and West Side. And while Hollyburn's unwavering company-wide dedication to professionalism, service, quality, and commitment gives them their status as a top property management firm, their commitment to environmental stewardship truly sets them apart.

    They have, among other things, partnered with Natural Resources Canada in a national pilot project called the Energy Innovators Initiative, participated in a BCIT/ BC Hydro joint study to harness wind power, the Greenhouse Gas Registry created to minimize our reliance on fossil fuels, solar and tidal power feasibility research, and BC Hydro's Product Incentive and Green Power Certificate Programs. They are committed to creating Energy-Smart Suites and follow a Green Building Template -- the Hollyburn portfolio of rental apartments represents some of the greenest buildings in Canada.

    Hollyburn's partnership with FortisBC started in 2005. Since then, they've "replaced 14 boilers in [their] buildings through the Efficient Boiler Program - and received nearly $206,000 in rebates - rebates that were reinvested back into further [building] improvements...For Hollyburn, retrofitting heating systems to high efficiency (and thereby extending the life of 40 to 50 year old buildings), fits in with their commitment to environmental conservation."

    So committed are they to energy efficiency in their community, Hollyburn's Chief Executive Officer Paul Sander recommends FortisBC's programs to others: "Working with FortisBC is worthwhile. We have a good relationship with our energy solutions manager and I'd recommend the Efficient Boiler Program to other building owners and landlords."
