Targeting net-zero carbon emissions

This opportunity comes at a time when mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) technologies have advanced to better support MTL’s corporate mission and their commitment to sustainability. The facility will showcase the latest innovations in MEP systems and demonstrate their environmental and economic benefits.

To successfully execute this project for MTL, the architectural and MEP design team will work closely together to align the programming, architectural design, and MEP systems with the lofty goals for the facility. The team will consider how to best integrate the needs of each space type (workspace, laboratory, retail, residential, and common space), leveraging the architectural, process, and energy synergies among them. The MEP design team will use modeling tools in the pre-design phase to provide the data needed to make informed decisions about the facility. This will enable the implementation of bold architectural ideas while keeping the design consistent with MTL’s objectives.
