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.
