Description: Mountain Equipment Co-operative (MEC) has a brand new head office space in Vancouver and it seems to be one that fits MEC’s vision. The four-story HQ which has an employee lounge with mountain views, in addition to a climbing wall and bike lockers, is about 70% more energy efficient than comparable commercial buildings. CFO Sandy Treagus says this new building is much more appropriate for the energy of MEC’s workforce.
