Project Evergreen

As a company that has been listed in PROFIT 500s fastest growing companies in Canada for 4 years in a row, it was inevitable that AET would have to undergo an expansion to our offices.  The Directors of our company took it as an opportunity to put their passion for the environment to work.  In 2016 AET began construction on an expansion to our current office space by implementing the following measures:

  • LED lighting throughout
  • Clearview atrium in centre of roof to allow natural day lighting into office spaces
  • Individual office place with upper two thirds of interior private office walls glazed with double pane glass (allows natural light infiltration)
  • Interface tile carpeting throughout from recycled material
  • Living wall tied into the cold air return to filter air and improve air quality
  • Separate zoned heating/cooling including motion sensor thermostat to only heat/cool when space is occupied
  • Energy start appliances and equipment
  • No VOC paint on all walls and ceiling
  • Hemp oil finish to all trim and doors
  • Low flow faucets and dual flush toilet
  • 2-foot overhand to provide shading in the summer and gain in the winter with shutter window systems
  • Low emissivity roofing membrane to prevent heat gain
  • Installation of a bioswale and rain garden for onsite storm water management
  • R50 Insulated roof and continuous R30 floor to ceiling walls
  • Outdoor lighting on photo sensors
  • Reclaimed brick and timber
  • UV water purification system
