UBC CIRS: Roof Monitoring
LOCATION: Vancouver, BC INDUSTRY: Commercial
The Centre for Interactive Research on Sustainability (CIRS) was developed in response to the challenge of creating a more sustainable society. CIRS was designed to be the most innovative and high performance building in North America at the time of its construction. Integrated building systems, comprehensively monitored and centrally controlled, are designed to meet goals of zero carbon emissions, water self-sufficiency, net-positive energy performance and zero waste. SMT has deployed a Moisture Detection Sensor (MDS) grid on the CIRS green roof that will alert UBC maintenance staff in the event of any leaks or undetected moisture accumulation under the roof membrane.
