"Green" architecture and historic conservation
Red River College Campus is a state-of-the-art business, multi-media, and information technology learning centre. The project was built on a brownfield site. The Campus is the largest project to meet C-2000 Federal Sustainable Development performance standards and exceeds CBIP standards, which includes energy efficiency 47% better than the Model National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings. This was achieved through numerous measures including: high efficiency condensate gas boilers, spectrally selective glazing systems, a 12.8 kW building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) array south façade curtain wall and extensive access to natural light.
