LBC Certification



The Calgary Zoo’s 1,632 m2 existing Eurasian Gateway Building and its 5,624 m2 exterior exhibit space was modified to welcome the Giant Pandas for Spring of 2018 and the accompanying large number of excited visitors expected. The exhibit was built to accommodate the Giant Pandas’ specific needs during their five-year stay while ensuring it was able to transition into the next species’ home.


MGB provided a Living Building Challenge feasibility study and are now providing consulting services for LBC Certification. 


Once the Panda Passage attains LBC certification, it will be the very first LBC Certified project in Calgary!
