Data Centres

When you think green building, you don't traditionally think of large data centres. These facilities house technical equipment that can run at full capacity 24 hours a day and use up to (potentially) 75 per cent of a building's total energy load.

But where some people see challenge, others see opportunity. In this section you'll read case studies about some of Canada's cutting-edge LEED certified data centres and the organizations behind them. These leaders have recognized that in order to maximize efficiency, sometimes all it takes is using your existing technology in a different way. By incorporating smarter, greener operations, these green buildings prove that going green can also keep the bottom line happy, and lead to higher productivity and employee satisfaction rates.
