Solar Brick Façade
Project Status: Completed
Product Used: Mitrex BIPV Panels- Brick Pattern
Another amazing retrofit, this time on a post-war era brick building. Using the new Mitrex brick BIPV cladding which generates 330W per panel, Mitrex was able to maintain the masonry theme that is present on the remainder of the building.
With 4000 sq ft of panels this system will generate approximately 59Kw of clean and green electricity. Easily installed using masonry anchors and a Z Girt Rainscreen system, this project clearly illustrates the opportunity that our municipalities have as they strive to lower their carbon footprint on aging buildings.
In the past, options would have been limited to placing a few solar panels on limited roof space while worrying about whether the roof was structurally sound enough to support them. This did nothing to help with the aesthetics. Clearly that is now a non-issue! #remarkablerenewables
Warehouse Retrofit, Ontario
Project Status: Complete
Products Used: Mitrex BIPV Cladding
Using 7000 Square Feet of Mitrex BIPV cladding panels will help supplement the building’s energy usage to the tune of 100,000 KW of energy while providing an attractive and durable façade.
The remainder of the building incorporates natural stone panels which were easily integrated into the BIPV panels.
Warehouses can be notorious for their high energy usage, and this is but one example of how this can be mitigated while lowering the carbon footprint.
Congratulations to Team Mitrex on a job well done and for setting the standard!
Saint Mary’s University Loyola Residence Retrofit
Anticipated Completion Date: Q1 2023
Products Used: Mitrex BIPV Cladding and Solar Windows
Saint Mary’s University was looking to reclad a portion of a high- rise student residence on campus and was originally considering traditional cladding options such as Aluminium Composite. Panels. However, through discussions between General Contractor Ellis Don of Toronto and Mitrex Solar, the decision was made to explore BIPV Cladding and Solar Windows.
This will be the largest project of its kind in the region and the tallest to date in North America.
Through the energy modelling conducted by Dillion Consulting it was determined that it was feasible to proceed with the Mitrex BIPV as cladding as well as several solar windows in the middle.
