Constructed in 2012, UBC’s Earth Sciences building is a state of the art research laboratory focusing on Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric sciences. In 2015 UBC’s Energy and Water Services partnered with CPP Wind and ESC Automation to optimize the exhaust system using a wind responsive system. This has resulted in a 10% reduction in building electricity use, reduced noise pollution and improved building pressure control.
