Net Zero Model for Canada.
HAMILTON, Ontario -- A new type of curtainwall system is a key component of a new net zero energy building at a Canadian college. The new 96,000 ft2 (8900 m2) Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation at Mohawk College in Ontario is a national and global pilot project that will help determine the requirements and standards for the Canadian Green Building Council Zero Carbon Buildings Framework and contribute to the World Green Building Council's "Advancing Net Zero" project, which aims to ensure that all buildings are net zero carbon by 2050. To help the building reach net zero energy status, the building team implemented a curtain-wall system that uses isolation gaskets to achieve effective R-20 thermal performance. Construction of the building is scheduled to be completed by fall 2018.
