Access floors help raise office tower to LEED Gold

September 01, 2008 |

The installation of raised floors with underfloor air distribution throughout 1.2 million-sf RBC Centre in Toronto is expected to significantly contribute to the tower's LEED Gold certification. The $420 million project, which is on schedule for a June 2009 completion, will achieve estimated energy savings of 50% relative to buildings built to the Canadian National Energy Code.

“The raised floor system represents a new, better technology that offers greater flexibility in terms of HVAC distribution and the location of data and telecommunications cabling,” said Wayne Barwise, SVP of office development with Cadillac Fairview Corp., owner of the property. Barwise said the system will provide occupants greater control over comfort because the raised floor system places diffusers in the floor to distribute conditioned air throughout the building.
