The first living wall in Canada’s East Coast was installed in September 2009 at Saint Mary’s University in Eastern Canada.
There’s 1,100 plants in the three-story living wall. It’s the largest living wall in Eastern Canada and it actively cleans the air of the building. According to Dr. Alan Darlington, President of Nedlaw Living Walls, “The living wall at Saint Mary’s represents the matching of science, engineering and art. It is a functional centre piece for the building that not only looks great but is fully integrated into the building’s air handling system.” The Atrium, currently under construction to Silver LEED® certification standards, is not yet open to students and the public.
