Energy savings and environmental responsibility

A white roof and underground parking allowing us to limit heat islands by reflecting the sun's rays in the summer and strain on sewer drains during downpours by means of limiting waterproof surfaces.

As well, the height of the building provides a more efficient use of the sharing of services and energy to its occupants.

The management team has put in place a process of ''re-commissioning'' of the building. This process consists of modifying the building's operating schedules (Heating, air conditioning and lighting) in order to better correspond to the occupants' true needs by installing and optimising automated controls. Automated lighting controls allow lighting to be shut off during unoccupied periods.

Moreover, comfort parameters, both in function and consumption, are constantly monitored in order to detect and to correct any anomalies as rapidly as possible. A poll of the occupants will be carried out on an annual basis to assure that their satisfaction is attained.

Reduction in the use of drinking water

The ongoing renovation of faucets, toilets and showers and the installation of water consumption meters are in progress in the Caron building in order to attain constant improvement of the plumbing systems.
