Commerce Court –Retrofit with Chilled Beam Technology

Theme: Innovative Technologies Promotion Night

Commerce Court

ASHRAE Toronto Chapter's May dinner meeting will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Toronto/Vaughan.  The featured project is the chilled beam retrofit to Commerce Court West. Located at King and Bay in the heart of Toronto’s financial district, the tower is one of I.M. Pei’s most celebrated creations.  Years on, its brilliant imperial stainless steel exterior, large, wide-open functional floors and large public spaces continue to inspire.  Commerce Court is operated by GWL Realty Advisors Inc., and has been undergoing significant retrofits for energy efficiency.  The use of chilled beams in this application is a key part of the modernization of the tower’s HVAC/R systems. 

  • Landmark structure, designed by famed architect I.M. Pei
  • Recognized by BOMA Canada as building of the year, with the prestigious BOMA BESt certification for Level 3 sustainable excellence
  • Innovative use of chilled beam technology in air distribution
  • Lectures will speak to the application of chilled beams in air distribution, as per ASHRAE standards
