Special attention was paid to the efficiency of mechanical systems to ensure user comfort. The building was certified LEED Canada-NC Gold in February 2012 and provides an outstanding work environment for employees.
Desjardins’ head office in Granby was designed to ensure user comfort by paying special attention to layout flexibility and mechanical systems efficiency. Desjardins wanted their headquarters to serve as an example for ecological integrity, and CIMA+ was able to offer support in achieving this goal. Our innovative and resourceful solutions include 36 geothermal wells for heating and cooling, multi-zone ventilation, and low-flow plumbing to maximize water economy, air quality, and energy efficiency. Thanks to CIMA+’s innovative solutions, this $25M building is 41.7% more efficient than the MNECB 1997 reference building.
