After a successful pilot project testing Smart Building technology in 13 buildings, Public Works will be the environmental upgrades in over 100 federal buildings over the next three years, the government announced Monday. The plan will see the federal government, as part of a public-private partnership with Jones Lang LaSalle and the RYCOM Corporation, installing modernized energy tracking technology in federal buildings.
“The Smart Buildings initiative allows us to make a real impact by implementing innovative technologies and identifying opportunities for energy savings,” said Parliamentary secretary to the minister of Public Works Steven MacKinnon in a statement. “The result is lower overall energy costs for federal buildings and a reduced carbon footprint.”http://www.metronews.ca/news/ottawa/2017/07/24/smart-building-technology-federal-buildings.html
