PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

Project Details

The Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health (CBH) at UBC’s Point Grey Campus is a new 6-storey facility including outpatient clinical areas, lecture theatres, teaching and research labs, and academic offices.

With a focus on reduced energy consumption and water conservation, sustainable strategies at the CBH include a low temperature
(hydronic) heating system, heat recovery through laboratory exhaust, low flow plumbing fixtures and Thermenex (Thermenex is a pipe with a thermal gradient with control valves that functions as a hub for the efficient management of heat. It is a custom-built thermal heat exchange hub that dynamically manages the movement of heat to where it is required.)
