Hagen specializes in the manufacture and distribution of pet products. The design of their new head office, located in Baie d’Urfé, Québec, was inspired by European trends, creative and high-tech, reflecting the corporate image of the company. This 3-storey building was also designed in accordance with principles of sustainable development. In an effort to obtain a LEED GOLD certification the following components were introduced: Indigenous landscaping; proximity to public transit; geothermal heating system; 60% reduction in energy consumption; use of local and recycled materials and low-emitting products; natural stormwater management and treatment; exploitation of natural light sources; potable water use reduction.
