Endress+Hauser Customer Experience Centre Achieves ZCB Certification

DCS Endress Hauser Customer Experience Centre Acheives ZCB Certification 1 400x275

September 30, 2022

 

The Endress+Hauser Customer Experience Centre is Zero Carbon Building (ZCB) – Design Certified, the first of two advanced sustainability targets for the new facility. 

The 47,000 SF training and administrative centre located in Burlington, ON, is the first privately owned facility to target ZCB and LEED Gold Certification simultaneously, and the first Net Zero Energy, Net Zero Carbon design for the international company, setting a new standard for its international portfolio of buildings. 

 

Endress+Hauser views the training and education of young people as a sign of social responsibility

Established by the Canadian Green Building Council, ZCB standards are a made-in-Canada framework that define low-carbon design and operational performance for buildings. This is mcCallumSather’s second ZCB Certified facility, following the success of The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation (with B+H), the first building in Canada to achieve both ZCB Certifications for Design and Performance. 

Endress+Hauser, a Swiss Owned Family Company, is deeply committed to sustainability and originally set a target of LEED Silver, similar to a recently constructed centre in Calgary. The design team conducted a Net Zero study, demonstrating how, with a modest additional investment, we could reduce energy consumption by 40% over the Calgary facility, including layers of energy reduction strategies, passive design, occupant and internal gain strategies, and active design strategies such as carbon offsets, geo fields and onsite solar.

Endress+Hauser is a global leader in measurement instrumentation, services and solutions for industrial process engineering. Its specialized scientific equipment is a centre point of this exciting design. This achievement helps to demonstrate the potential for net zero design within science driven facilities, which often require higher energy demands to help manage and run its specialized equipment, such as the prominent PTU Unit, a feature of the design. 

Congratulations to the full design team and Endress+Hauser on this exciting achievement. Learn more about the project here: https://www.mccallumsather.com/projects/endresshauser-customer-experience-centre/

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
