Manitoba Hydro Place, Winnipeg, Manitoba


A model for bioclimatic design in an extreme climate, Manitoba Hydro Place is one of the most energy efficient large office towers in North America. It was designed to achieve a 60% energy reduction compared to the Model National Energy Code for Buildings (MNECB) — and has bested this objective. Concrete’s thermal mass is central to the building’s energy efficiency design.

Additionally, in the video link below, Mark Pauls, Building Energy Management Engineer for Manitoba Hydro Place, discusses the building’s energy-efficient design and concrete’s fundamental contribution to its performance: https://vimeo.com/273793942
