As Canada's first C-2000 office building, Green on the Grand was designed to be energy-efficient and environmentally responsible. Computer simulations and detailed calculations compared the energy consumption of Green on the Grand with that of a similar office building built to contemporary energy-efficiency standards (ASHRAE 90.1). Specifically, the building requires only 40% of the operating energy and 28% of the water use of a conventional building designed to these standards. Essentially, no CFCs or HCFCs were used to produce any of the building materials or operate any of the equipment. The building is being monitored during 1996 and 1997 to determine actual energy performance.
