Green Rock Industrial Business Park
Green Rock Industrial Business Park is located at Bowen Road and Dufferin Crescent in Central Nanaimo. It is the first ‘green’ subdivision on Vancouver Island and is comprised of 23 acres of land that is unique in its use of bio-swale rainwater management systems and the retention and planting of natural vegetation that will be maintained through automated irrigation only until a root system is established. The application of these green initiatives in an industrial setting will appeal to businesses who are interested in expanding their sustainability efforts to their location.
- Irrigation system tests soil moisture content and adjusts automatically to provide only the amount of water that is required. System is only in place to allow young plants to develop a root system, after which it won’t be required
- Roadside bioswales for rainwater management
- Use of absorbent landscape soils and retention of a large portion of native plant life
