Business & Multi-Residential Properties

Business and Multi-Residential properties

Across Ontario, owners and operators of businesses, colleges, universities and multi-residential properties are facing seemingly competing issues: rising costs, the pressure to conduct operations sustainably and the need to manage stormwater on their properties in the face of increasingly unpredictable weather patterns and aging municipal infrastructure.


Low impact development (LID) provides you with an eco-friendly way to manage stormwater on your property, ensuring you protect your assets and business operations from the impacts of stormwater, green your property and build your green brand. LID will also help you meet municipal, provincial and federal regulations as well as meet your organization’s sustainability targets.
