What we do

Dedicated to sustainable, high-performance building

The Magazine

Sustainable Architecture & Building Magazine [SABMag] covers sustainable, high-performance building and renovations of all types in Canada. It provides profiles of new and renovated buildings, and reports on products, technologies and trends in Canadian sustainable design. SABMag also provides Continuing Education articles for LEED professionals. 

The Canadian Green Building Awards

This annual Program recognizes and publicizes the best Canadian green buildings in nine building categories as selected by a panel of independent design and building professionals. The winning projects are published in the Summer issue of SABMag, and on the SABMag web site and Facebook page, and throughout the year in our monthly e-News – giving our sponsors [link to sponsor pdf] excellent targeted visibility for 12 months.

Product Directory

The  Directory of Sustainable Products and Services for Sustainable, High-Performance Building is found in a special section of the SABMag Winter issue [print and digital], and on the SABMag web site. Product and service listings are organized by Product Category and by LEED Category according to LEED v4, and is a quick reference for finding products. Participating companies are also listed and linked in every print/digital issue of SABMag and FOCUS Publications, and from the SABMag Home Page and Facebook page.

Regional FOCUS publications

SABMag publishes four regional FOCUS publications with the Canada Green Building Council Chapters in British Columbia, Alberta, Greater Toronto Area and Atlantic. They cover local building projects, programs and news and are distributed in print and digital formats, at Chapter events and seminars, and on the Chapter web sites. Click here for a Sample.

LEED year in review

An annual supplement – published by SABMag and the CaGBC – serving as a public record of all buildings and interiors in Canada that have obtained LEED certification in the past year.

Content Creation

We help companies boost their marketing by creating one-page digital case studies about their products or services, and distributing these to the market through our web site, print and digital magazine, and e-News channels. We can do the same with video. And, we can ramp it up by producing multi-page case studies and profiles – even books – in print or digital. We’re skilled at getting your customers to think about your products. Share your ideas with us.
