Two buildings located in the Carleton Place Colonnade retail development, a project constructed by SiteCast Construction, have been recognized for their energy efficiency.
The recognition by Enbridge, the provider of gas utilities for Ontario, is part of its High Performance New Construction or “HPNC” Program, which identifies those builders and developers who achieve reduced kilowatt demand during construction of a property. The program was introduced to save energy and reduce overall energy costs.
The buildings, located at 515 and 525 McNeely Avenue and total more than 28,000 square feet, were chosen based on the use of high efficiency air conditioning units during construction. The HPNC Program also provides recognition to companies based on energy efficient lighting, alternative energy, motors, and agribusiness.
SiteCast and Colonnade Development are working together to reach higher energy efficiency in their design and construction processes in an effort to continue to be included in energy reduction programs like HPNC in the future.
