Project Details

The Energy, Environmental, and Experiential Learning building at the University of Calgary is a 5-Storey facility that provides instructional spaces for programs in energy and environment, and new engineering, biology, and chemistry laboratories. The building uses 78% less energy compared to other conventional laboratory buildings through technologies such as: daylight harvesting, solar shutters/louvres, radiant slab heating, daylight sensors, occupancy sensors, smart timing schedules controlling high efficiency light fixtures, rainwater harvesting, cooling towers, and low flow fixtures.

LEED Platinum (one of 29 buildings in all of Canada to receive this level of certification)

The construction Management team was responsible for pre-construction services, all electrical and mechanical labour and subcontracts, accounting, cost estimating, project scheduling, safety, quality control, commissioning, 3D modeling and BIM Integration, and administrative services for the project.

Trotter & Morton’s electrical team was responsible for all Electrical, Voice/Data, Security, Fire Alarm, and Distribution. And the mechanical team was responsible for all mechanical services including sheet metal, sprinklers, insulation, and BMS.
