Manitoba Hydro Place, located in the heart of downtown Winnipeg, Man., is a showcase of sustainable design and construction.

The building, one of the tallest in Winnipeg’s downtown core, is the only LEED Platinum office tower in Canada, with a bioclimatic, energy-efficient design that houses more than 1,600 employees who were formerly spread over several suburban office complexes.

Mark Pauls, a building energy management engineer with Manitoba Hydro, spoke to the Journal of Commerce about the tower, highlighting the water feature and faced which acts as a humidifier for the building.

Pauls also explained how Manitoba Hydro was able to design and implement a tower which achieves high energy efficiency in an environment with wildly variable weather conditions.
