Project Objectives

The main objective of this project is to develop a deep energy retrofit of a 4-storey, 42,900 sq.ft., 56-unit student residence for the Nunavut Arctic College targeting a 50% energy reduction in whole-building energy consumption.

Performance improvement will be confirmed through an extensive measurement and verification phase and compared to pre-retrofit benchmark data.

The project aims to verify the affordability of, and create market confidence in, the methods and technologies of deep energy retrofits in Nunavut.

Expected Results

In the north, there is a greater emphasis on retrofit activity and improvements to existing buildings. Strategically, this project hopes to deliver lessons learned in terms of retrofit strategy.

There is also great opportunity for replication of this technology across the north, thereby benefiting Canadians.
