Vital Engineering Wins ASHRAE Society Level Award

OCTOBER 24 | 2012 | 9:15 AM

Vital Engineering has won an honorable mention at the 2013 ASHRAE Society Level Awards.

"To receive an honorable mention at the ASHRAE Society Level is a great honor" states Vital Vice President and Project Lead Scott Koehn". "Vital is always looking to implement highly innovative approaches to our projects, and to be recognized at both the Regional and Society ASHRAE Levels is very exciting".

Vital has won for their work on the Brentwood Net Zero Apartment complex in Edmonton. "This building was developed to serve Edmonton’s affordable rental housing market (lower to average income families) states Koehn". "As such, it has a unique business plan, which requires reasonable first cost, coupled with reduced energy use throughout its life cycle in order to remain affordable for occupants.  Significant attention was paid to enhancing the envelope and maximize passive solar gain in order to minimize building heating and cooling loads."

This project had also recently been selected as the first residential project in the Edmonton Eco Solar Commercial Tour open to the general public and sponsored by Edmonton Environmental Awareness Week.
