2018 was a year of growth, change and a new vision for McMaster Innovation Park and its partnership with Sustainable Hamilton Burlington. Initiatives include completion of a Co-Gen Facility in our District Energy System and system upgrades at our Leeds Platinum building at 183 Longwood Road to ensure it continues to achieve the highest standards. Continuous improvements took place across the park with upgraded speed drives for major air handling units and major electrical equipment improvements as lifecycle requirements allowed. The use of trend data from our building automation system allowed for an enhanced occupancy schedule that controlled heating and lighting to further reduce energy needs.
As McMaster Innovation Park continues its expansion in the future we look forward to collaborating with Sustainable Hamilton Burlington. 2018 also saw the proud tradition of McMaster Innovation Park involved in continuing community service: Work with Habitat for Humanity on the Wilson street project, the wildly successful Art in the Workplace events, Food drives, Hosting the Bay Area Science & Engineering Fair are some of the many opportunity’s the Innovation Park staff enjoyed taking part in.
