State-of-the-art infrastructure

State-of-the-art infrastructure

95% of rainwater is reused and recycled

Instead of entering the municipal wastewater system, the Technopôle Angus rainwater collection system ensures that rainwater evaporates or is reused for washrooms, landscaping, gardening, washing vehicles, and more.

40% reduction in potable water use.

Energy loop

The energy loop connects all Technopôle buildings, recovering and exchanging the energy used by green-building systems. This energy is then redistributed to meet heating and cooling needs.

40% reduction in building energy consumption ;
26% reduction in natural gas consumption and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Exterior lighting

Lighting is designed to keep light pollution to a minimum, and is 38% more energy efficient than standard outdoor lighting systems.
