Cogswell Tower

A 14-story tower located within a busy shopping complex.

The Challenge

Crombie REIT strives to make environmental sustainability a part of their everyday decision-making and recognized that Ecopilot®could play a significant role in achieving that.  As a result, they installed Ecopilot® to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as improve the internal climate of the facility.  Cogswell Tower is BOMA Best Gold Certified and holds a BOMA Nova Scotia Award of Excellence.

The Results

A simplification of the establishment and its installed systems resulted in lower energy consumption and reduced installation and maintenance costs. In addition, a higher level of comfort was attained for those who spend time in the premises. Ecopilot® now utilises the building’s thermal inertia to prevent stepping on the gas and braking unnecessarily.
