About Purpose Building

Purpose Building develops solutions for healthy, long-life buildings that work in a low-carbon, circular economy. We apply decades of experience in pragmatic innovation and high performance collaboration to optimize financial and physical performance

Who We Are

A team of Canadian building performance experts created Purpose in 2018 as an employee-owned company to accelerate real estate to planet-positive performance.

As former leaders of a national green building group, the team has been driving sustainability performance in real estate since the 1990s. We have delivered organizational strategies and solutions for new development, existing buildings and portfolios in all classes of real estate assets.

With staff in Ontario and BC, Purpose serves clients across North America, including companies, institutions, governments and not-for-profit.

We draw out the best of everybody to create a better future through healthy, circular, low-carbon, financially successful buildings and communities.

Vision: What We Are Aiming For

A future in which our generation’s activity has achieved an ecological balance in time to allow our children and grandchildren to survive and thrive.

Mission: How We Will Get There

Deliver best-of-market strategies collaboratively to achieve leading edge performance of new and existing facilities.

Continually enrich the team’s expertise to optimize solutions and focus our efforts.
