Description

This 163,600 sq. ft. of office space is divided into 5 floors to provide a mixed use facility for Maple Leaf Foods. The centre has a simulated retail environment, presentation kitchens, teaching/demo facilities, research labs, product development space, sensory testing areas. Elsewhere in the building is a 124 seat auditorium, a resource library, meeting facilities, and office space. The Insight Team was responsible for the pursuit, design and construction oversight.

Features

The project is designed using Class “A” mechanical systems, achieving extremely high energy efficiency at price levels similar to typical suburban office space, achieving LEED Gold.

A central water cooled chiller provides chilled water to VAV compartment units on each floor, and central condensing boilers serve perimeter heating needs.

Low-flow plumbing fixtures to reduce water consumption, including waterless urinals.

Demand controlled ventilation based on occupant load is integral to conserve energy under partial occupancy conditions, including control of heat recovery ventilation.

Fan-powered boxes help create superior indoor air quality by providing consistent outdoor air, and at the same time reducing net energy consumption.

100% outdoor air economizers were also used to reduce energy and provide continuous outside air, quality assured by airflow monitoring.
