One of the best endorsements you can receive is to have repeat demand. The SolarWall technology is amenable to a wide variety of municipal and government buildings. As municipalities either expand their building stock or make improvements to their existing buildings, we are always proud when SolarWall systems are chosen over and over again to be part of their carbon-free future.
At the end of September the Region of Peel had a ceremony to officially open one of their brand new Paramedics Station in Mississauga, a rapidly expanding city adjacent to the City of Toronto. The Streetsville Paramedic Station is a reporting station that will house 20 ambulances and work with smaller satellite stations in the community.
SolarWall systems were incorporated into three walls of the facility, totaling around 8,700 ft2 of collector space. The metal SolarWall cladding system works in harmony with the aesthetics of the building while also helping the Region of Peel to reduce their carbon footprint. The SolarWall technology was also used on the last paramedics station that was constructed in Peel and opened in 2016.
Condo buildings are on the rise across all urban areas, and so is the use of the SolarWall air heating technology for high-rises. The SolarWall system becomes the exterior facade for the building and offers maximum architectural flexibility. We love working with architects to help create these buildings that are not only beautiful but are dramatically reducing their carbon footprint with SolarWall air heating.
Read more here about the use of SolarWall heating by condo developers to reduce their carbon footprint and help facilitate Net Zero Building Standards; and also the use in older multi-residential buildings for recladding / over-cladding purposes.
This exciting new standard is the only one in North America that uses carbon as the key performance metric. The Evolv1 Urban Office in Waterloo, Ontario is the first building in Canada to be certified to this Zero Carbon Building Standard. A SolarWall air heating system was included as a key on-site renewable energy generation technology to help reduce their carbon footprint and provide carbon-free heating. The SolarWall system is also a key part of the front facade, showing that aesthetics and functionality can go hand-in-hand. Read more about this landmark project here:
