The project’s sustainability target drove each aspect of system design and construction requiring collaboration and coordination to meet quality, cost, and schedule milestones. The project program included a 30,000 sq. ft. warehouse and order fulfillment area, clean rooms for product manufacturing, and office areas supporting leadership, sales, and customer service functions. The building was also designed to be a symbol of transparency and sustainability with key lawmakers, industry leaders, clients, and stakeholders able to tour the entire facility and see all elements of Ecofibre’s process from order taking to order shipping.
The commissioning scope included true Whole Building Commissioning encompassing the Building Enclosure, MEP Systems, Renewable Systems, Rainwater Collection and one year of Monitoring-Based Commissioning. Hands-on design through operations phase participation honed goals, verified strategies, and transitioned the building to operations. Particular emphasis was placed on controls strategies to integrate all elements of the building operations into one interface with operations dashboard.
