Green construction

An energy-autonomous, CO2-neutral customer experience and training center was built in Canada 

The Endress+Hauser Group has invested 20 million euros in a completely sustainable building. The customer experience and process training center in Burlington, Ontario, roughly 50 kilometers southwest of Toronto, is energy-autonomous and CO2 neutral. It covers all of its energy needs with local regenerative sources.

High claims: The new building in Canada is designed to be carbon-neutral.

“Our goal was to create an exceptional facility that will not only be sustainable on the day it opens, but will still be considered as such decades from now,” explains Anthony Varga, Managing Director, Endress+Hauser Canada.  

The building in Canada covers its electricity needs with more than 800 solar modules installed on the roof. These panels can generate around 408,000 kilowatt hours of electricity on an annual basis, exceeding the needs of the building so that electricity can be fed into the grid. A geothermal system draws heat from 50 wells at a depth of 180 meters and distributes it across the entire building via 63 heat pumps. 

Tree-adorned atrium

The customer experience and process training center opened in the spring of 2022. Among other things, customers can use a training center in the facility to familiarize themselves with Endress+Hauser process technology. “All of our customers and partners can simulate process conditions like the ones they have at their own plants,” says Anthony Varga. At the heart of the building there is also a four-meter-high ficus tree, which symbolizes the "green" idea and also improves the air quality.

Ecological new construction

Endress+Hauser’s production is not energy intensive and has little impact on the environment. One of the biggest contributors to the ecological footprint is the building infrastructure. With this in mind, the Group designs new buildings with green aspects and meets demanding energy efficiency standards. Thanks to all of these measures, the building is one of the greenest structures in the country.  

Endress+Hauser is the first private company to strive for all three certificates from the Canada Green Building Council: Net Zero Energy, Zero Carbon Building Standards and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) in Gold.
