For the past three years Cintas has scoured Canadian restaurants and public facilities for its Best Restroom award, but they have not searched out Canada’s Best office space Restroom. You would be surprised how many elegant restrooms that can be found in some office spaces. Telsec Business Centres Inc. has some of the nicest and greenest restrooms in Toronto, but not just compared to other office spaces. A few years ago the office space Toronto restrooms at Telsec underwent a major renovation that not only beautified them, but it also included some green features. The lighting was changed to more efficient fixtures and bulbs, but it was also made softer and more relaxing. The sinks were replaced with a single glass shelf that stretched the length of the restroom and the entire wall. Over the sink area are two large mirrors that fill most of the wall. The faucets are […]

While Toronto’s Harbourfront has been developing for many years, it has only been in the past few years that developers have started looking at the Eastern Port Lands. It began when Toronto Port Lands Company (TPLC) decided to develop the first building directly on Toronto’s waterfront to achieve LEED certification. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification consists of a suite of rating systems for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings, homes and neighborhoods. The new building was to house the radio and television studios and office space Toronto for primary tenant Corus Entertainment. Right next to Corus building, TPLC is constructing a new campus for George Brown College. Another Port Lands office space development is set to break ground this summer. The primary tenant has still not been announced. Most suspect that it will be a company looking for a building with not only the cool address, […]

Why should your company or organization consider renting a green friendly office space? Because it is good for the environment? Because it is good for your businesses bottom line? Because you can show your clients that you care about being green? Or is it all of the above? Being an eco friendly office is more far-reaching than most other office environments, having a green friendly office space Toronto helps to preserve this planet we live on. Being a green friendly office does not just mean recycling, it also means reducing consumption of natural resources like water. Having a touchless faucet that control the flow and motion detectors that start and stop the flow of water not only saves on water consumption, but the flow of the water can charge the battery of the electronic controls. You might be wondering how being a green friendly office space Toronto can help your […]

They want office space Toronto that is environmentally friendly or Toronto office space that takes steps to reduce their carbon footprint.

Earth Hour Earth Hour 2010 takes place on Saturday March 27th at 8.30pm (local time) and the lights will be out for an hour somewhere in the world for that hour.

Day 11 of the Vancouver Olympics Brings Another Gold Medal

By |2010-02-22T23:55:04-05:00February 22nd, 2010|Green Office, Office Space|

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have won the gold medal in Ice Dancing. Not only have they won another Gold Medal for Canada, they made Olympic history, they are the first North American team to win the Olympic Ice Dancing Championship. They went into tonight’s Free Skate with a 2.6 point lead, but there are their American training partners and a strong Russian team that were expected to give them them a good run. While I am not a fan of cross country skiing, I read today that Canadian Bill McKeever will make Olympic history by being the first winter athlete ever named to both Olympic and Paralympic teams. McKeever has only 10 % vision and that is not a challenge for him in competing with fully sighted skiers in the 50km race. His ability to compete with his vision impairment may even help him over other athletes in blinding snow conditions. […]

Do you travel to you office by green transportation? Have you ever truly wanted to travel to your downtown Toronto office by the ultimate green transportation? While taking public transit is green, bicycling to the office is the truly green way to get to your office. Some downtown office spaces can offer you, but only Telsec Toronto office space can offer a major bicycle route like the Martin Goodman Trail just outside the front door-a bicycle route like no other, an asphalt mostly off-road trail.  The Martin Goodman Trail is part of the 730 kilometre Waterfront Trail that connects 41 communities from Niagara to Quebec along the Canadian Shores of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. It was named in memory of the former President and Editor-in-Chief of the Toronto Star who passed away in 1981. How fitting that Telsec is located in the Toronto Star Building at 1 […]
