After years of work, and $1.9-million in renovations, the McKernan Community League has a very special new home in Edmonton. Not only did the league gain a lot more square footage to house a wide variety of activities, the renovation incorporated passive solar and geothermal elements that helps the building use less non-renewable energy for heating and hot water systems. It’s a long way from the original 1954 building, which had just a half inch of felt in the attic for insulation.
SEF provided a loan for a portion of the renovation costs.
Entrepreneurs, and in particular social entrepreneurs are usually moving pretty fast.
