- Construction: A construction process that maximizes the use of recycled and regional materials, as well as utilizing a waste management program to reduce environmental impact.
- Water Efficiency: Bremner Tower is designed to consume up to 40% less water than the LEED® baseline requirements through low flow plumbing fixtures and a dedicated cistern that will capture rainwater for reuse in the water closet, urinal flushing and landscape irrigation. It is estimated to save 640,000 litres per month or over 7 million litres annually. Reducing the use of potable water in buildings (for toilets, shower heads and faucets) helps conserve the total amount of water withdrawn from rivers, lakes and underground aquifers, as well as reducing energy use (pumping and treatment) and chemical inputs required for municipal water treatment.
- Energy Efficiency: The building has been designed to consume at least 30% less energy than the baseline model building under the Model National Energy Code for Buildings (MNECB) through the following design features: a highly efficient heating system; an under-floor air supply system; a chilled water thermal storage system; a efficient lighting system with daylight/occupancy sensors and solar blinds.
- Urban Forest/Green Roof: A high-rise office tower in downtown Toronto with a green roof and urban forest integrated into its design.
- Enwave & Thermal Water Storage: Thermal water storage tanks will allow Bremner Tower to use Enwave Deep Lake Cooling during non-peak, cost effective hours.
- Dimmable Lighting: Enhanced with specialized daylight and occupancy sensors, this state-of-the-art system can significantly reduce energy consumption.
