Tour #5: Sustainable Buildings' Technologies
Ever wonder what it would be like to marry sustainable buildings with sustainable technologies? Find out how two of Toronto's foremost leaders in the industry do it!
Stop One: Cisco Canada's Headquarters: Visit Cisco Canada's new Headquarters, housed in Oxford Properties' LEED® Platinum (targeted as of January 2016) RBC WaterPark Place. Cisco occupies 100,000 square feet, and is targeting LEED Gold for Commercial Interiors certification.
Visitors will see how the application of Cisco's technology has led to a dramatic reduction in required real estate footprint, as well as innovative use of technology such as power-over-Ethernet LED lighting. Home to the Cisco Innovation Centre where the next generation of applications that will drive more value and reduce the real estate footprint are being tested. See firsthand how the smart, green office of the future will work.
Stop Two: 25 York: Learn the process behind the application, the installation of the technology, occupant interaction, the behind-the-scenes flow of data (and early findings) into theLEED® Dynamic Plaque from the very first Canadian pioneers, Menkes Property Management Services! Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn best-practices during the tour of the LEED Platinum for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance building.
Come see first-hand the key building processes that feed into the technology which updates the LEED Dynamic Plaque. Participants will see: the Enwave Room which uses deep lake water cooling and steam for heating and cooling; sensored garage indicators for parking spot way-finding; the mechanical room for LED light display, fresh air fans, generator, etc.; and finally, the Menkes Management Office for raised-flooring, automatic adjusting shades, fresh air floor vents and view of the Telus Community Rooftop Garden.
