  • First office tower in Canada to be given LEED Platinum
  • Approximately 32,500 sq. ft. of Alucobond (Aluminum Composite Panels) and 20,000 sq. ft. of metal cladding
  • It is one of the most energy efficient office towers in the world
  • The 21 storey office tower houses 1,650 employees which were in 15 different locations before the merger
  • The tower houses a 115 meter tall solar chimney, a geo-thermal HVAC system, with 100% fresh air year round
  • The wall is a one meter wide double exterior that uses computer controlled motorized vents which adjusts the building’s skin throughout the day
  • These designs allow a 60% energy savings over a typical large office tower
