Aircuity’s airside efficiency platform was used in the major retrofit project at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC)’s building in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The building is now using two Aircuity Sensor Suites (SSTs) in its laboratory spaces and one SST for exhaust fan control.
“Over the last decade, airside efficiency has proved to be the biggest single energy efficiency conservation measure available for laboratory spaces,” said Dan Diehl, CEO at Aircuity, in a press release.
“Implementing energy retrofit projects in a lab environment is challenging,” added Mark Newman, energy management officer at the National Research Council. “But these same challenges also present the NRC with significant opportunities to conserve energy, reduce its environmental footprint and yield substantial savings on operating costs.”
The smart platform saves energy, gives building users access to intelligent data about their spaces and enables a healthier environment for those that work in the building. The system improves cognitive function and productivity, reduces environmental health and safety risks and promotes sustainability initiatives as part of a smart building strategy.
