Aircuity, maker of smart automated airside solutions, has announced that its airside efficiency platform - which improves energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality - has been included in a major retrofit project by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). The NRC’s building in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan is utilizing 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,” says Dan Diehl, CEO at Aircuity.
“Implementing energy retrofit projects in a lab environment is challenging,” explains 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.”
Aircuity’s smart platform saves energy, gives building users access to intelligent data about their spaces, and enables a healthier environment for occupants. The system improves cognitive function and productivity, reduces environmental health and safety risks and promotes sustainability initiatives as part of a smart building strategy.
