Canada’s first zero carbon office building relies on Carrier i-Vu® Building Automation System for comprehensive management of all building systems
Waterloo, ON Canada
Situated in the heart of Waterloo’s emerging IdeaQuarter is the Cora Group’s innovative evolv1 building. Engineered and built to attract today’s tech-savvy millennial workforce, their goal was to create a comfortable and energy-efficient urban office environment using state-of-the-art sustainable building principles.
Constructed in accordance with LEED1 Platinum principles, evolv1 wanted to achieve a net positive energy output, generating more energy than it consumes. To achieve this, evolv1’s building automation system (BAS) needed to successfully integrate, monitor and manage existing heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment, as well as ancillary building systems. Additionally, the final solution would need to provide real-time 360˚ views of all systems while providing facilities staff centralized management from any location.
