The MMI is proud to support the ongoing research on the energy consumption of a newly constructed apartment complex located in Winnipeg. Together with local developer and Mason, Gus Kotoulis, we are undertaking a long term study on the thermal performance of an occupied structure. The goal is to help the design community make informed choices, backed by science and data on future construction methods and their effects on our energy footprint and consumption.
This unique West Broadway project combines Aesthetic beauty with energy efficiency.
Looking to test the energy model built for the NBC, this building is designed with sensors throughout the facility that will monitor the performance of the building in the warmth of summer to extreme climatic conditions seen on the prairies. As there is no R value for masonry systems, this will help engineers and architects understand the true value of masonry construction in a living built environment.

Today is the day to see how masonry's many benefits can (and will) bring you success.
