The 8th International Urban Design Conference will be held at the Sofitel Brisbane from Monday 16 November to Wednesday 18 November 2015. This years’ theme titled Empowering Change: Transformative Innovations and Projects will focus on inspirational changes in urban environments.
Joining us all the way from North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Mr Roger Bayley, Program Director at smartforme, will be discussing Vancouver’s MC2 residential development – A Case Study for the funding and operation of integrated heating, cooling and domestic hot water technology.
Intracorp’s MC2 residential project provides a total of 554 suites in two towers with a significant rental component and will be completed by December 2015. The project incorporates a first-of-its-kind energy recycling initiative for high-rise residential development.
The MC2 project incorporates Vancouver’s first large scale Air to Water heat pump energy technology coupled with dynamic in-suite radiators that deliver both heating and cooling based on recycling atmospheric energy. The program recycles cooling energy for preheating domestic hot water and reduces overall carbon emissions in the order of 70% from standard gas fired business-as-usual designs. Consumers benefit from direct consumption allocation based on in-suite metering that supports energy conservation and provides system management and performance optimization.
