11-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows let in as much as 100% more natural light deep into the building interior, as compared to more traditional suburban office buildings.
Suspended indirect lighting is reflected off the iridescent exposed concrete ceiling providing occupants with a shadow free, soft, and even illumination which reduces monitor screen glare, eliminating user's eye strain.
Exposed concrete ceilings create significant thermal mass that moderates indoor temperature. Together, with the underfloor air distribution systems, an even temperature is maintained and hot/cold complaints are minimized.
Operable windows, evenly dispersed across all floors, allow occupants access to fresh air and personal control of the indoor environment.
A state-of-the-art daylight harvesting system tracks levels of sunlight and automatically adjusts internal light-shelves, window coverings, and artificial lighting to increase natural light, reduce heat gain, improve occupant comfort and reduce energy consumption.
Building maintains equalized interior & exterior air pressure, which, as studies show, can result in fewer headaches caused by air-pressure imbalances.
Raised access floor throughout the building, allows for individual adjustable mechanical air-floor diffusers for personal control of HVAC that can be easily relocated, added, and/or removed to meet individual levels of comfort for heating, ventilation, and cooling to create maximum comfort.
Improved air quality with underfloor air distribution. Stale air in the space is not mixed with fresh air for a healthier, more comfortable indoor environment.
Humidification is provided for the building, also supporting improved thermal comfort and occupant health and well-being.
Two compartmentalized HVAC zones per floor provide flexibility and reduce after-hours operating costs.
Underfloor air distribution systems utilize natural stratification that occurs when warm air rises due to the thermal buoyancy generated by heat sources, such as occupant and equipment, thus requiring fewer fans to distribute air, using less energy.
Heat recovery wheels within main ventilation systems reclaim heat from building exhaust to minimize boiler heating requirements and reduce gas consumption: reducing operating costs, as compared to traditional building systems.
Exposed concrete ceilings create significant thermal mass that moderates indoor temperature offsetting the HVAC system, reducing energy consumption.
Automated daylight harvesting system tracks levels of sunlight and synchronizes light-shelves and window coverings regulating artificial lighting and heat gain, lowering energy consumption.
Air flows freely from floor diffusers, without supplemental fans, through the open office space, resulting in lower heating and cooling costs.
Low-e, argon filled, double-paned window units temper light and thermal transmission.
Variable speed fan motors reduce energy consumption.
Horizontal, exterior solar shades on the entire south façade, and vertical exterior solar shading fins on the entire west façade, notably reduce required cooling loads.
The underfloor air supply temperature is warmer than a traditional overhead system, greatly extending the "free-cooling" period when no mechanical cooling is required, reducing energy consumption.
Raised access floor system allows for 'plug and play' electrical power, data, and communications wiring to be readily accessible and infinitely relocatable, with no unsightly electrical pack poles and without the need for costly renovations.
Raised access floor throughout the building, allows fixed and adjustable mechanical air floor diffusers to be easily relocated, added, and/or removed to meet individual levels of comfort for heating, ventilation, and cooling.
With minimal supply or return ductwork to relocate, the under floor air distribution system simplifies tenant construction and reduces costs.
Two building cores, with two potential major building entrances, allow choices for how clients and others can access, and experience the building.
Surrounding area offers a wide range of restaurants, shops, and amenities.
Dual building core:
Superior inter-floor connectivity with four elevators, twice as many as compared to a typical building of this size.
Four day-lit convenience stairs facilitate ease of access between floors and promotes occupant use and well-being.
Two levels of heated, well-lit, secure below grade parking offers superior parkade height at 7’ 10” clearance.
Additional amenities include fitness centre, showers, underground (secure/heated) bike lockers, and a café on the main floor.
