Burlington, ON-based Endress+Hauser Canada’s Customer Experience Centre, which opened officially last year, has added LEED Gold certification to its growing list of achievements and accolades as a pacesetter for new sustainable design and construction.

LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an international symbol of sustainability excellence and green building leadership. Achieving LEED Gold certification is an especially notable achievement for the multi-use Customer Experience Centre since the 47,000 sq ft facility houses industrial processes that often draw significant energy. These operations include a full-scale Process Training Unit (PTU), state-of-the-art Factory Acceptance Testing and calibration labs, and multi-purpose training and office areas.

The building attained ZCB Certification in 2022, demonstrating that it has achieved zero carbon operations. Currently, the building generates more energy than it consumes, with surpluses delivered to the Burlington Hydro grid.

The development team, including mcCallumSather the Prime Architect and Mechanical Engineers, succeeded in raising the bar for sustainability throughout the facility. The outcome is a high-performance building enclosure, creative mechanical system solutions, sustainable materials selection, supported by sustainable construction practices and use of the full site to support this vision.

To offset what energy could not be saved through its architectural and mechanical systems, it employed a combination of rooftop, double-sided solar panels, heat pumps supplemented by a geothermal system, and innovative energy conservation practices.

The PTU, for example, is a full-demonstration platform for the latest Endress+Hauser devices and solutions, one of only two in Canada; the other is at Endress+Hauser in Edmonton. Since the Burlington facility opened, thousands of current and potential customers have been able to see first-hand how to get the most from this technology.

Endress+Hauser measurement instrumentation, services and solutions for industrial process engineering include sensors, instruments, systems and services for level, flow, pressure, and temperature measurement as well as analytics and data acquisition.
