Mason & Hanger provided a unique and innovative design that supported the net zero aspirations at the Parks Reserve Forces Training Area. The innovative design was possible due to the moderate climate with plenty of sun and a consistently strong breeze. An energy charrette at the beginning of the project allowed the design team and stakeholders to identify the sustainable goals for this project. The building utilized passive cooling and heating, radiant floor heating and natural ventilation. The building design had to not only support the user but also be designed to support the passive heating and cooling systems.
