Eau Claire Tower

Located adjacent to the banks of the Bow River in downtown Calgary, this 28-storey, 645,000 sq.ft. building has completed the construction phase of a 3 million sq.ft. redevelopment. The Eau Claire Tower overlooks scenic Prince’s Island Park and is within walking distance to central businesses, dining, and shopping. The tower incorporated a number of advanced sustainable design initiatives and is registered and targeting LEED Gold certification.

m+b was responsible for the lighting design, power generation and distribution, life safety systems including fire alarm, full security and communication integration systems. The building uses I.P. based ‘smart technology’ which provides a full integration between the building control systems including access control, CCTV, lighting and building management systems, to name a few. This enhanced technology enables all systems to communicate to one another with remote monitoring/control through a web based user interface.

All lighting within the building uses LED technology with programmable lighting control system for daylight harvesting and occupancy sensing giving on/off control or dimming capabilities to each fixture.
