HCE and McMaster Innovation Park
In 2010, HCE formed a strategic partnership with McMaster Innovation Park in Hamilton, completing an on-site satellite operation, becoming one of the first in Ontario to combine conventional DES with renewable technologyconnecting and interfacing district heating and cooling equipment with a geo exchange system of eighty-one 500 ft. geo wells and the CANMET Materials Laboratory solar thermal technology.
This project is one of a very few employing a hybrid of renewable, green and conventional technologies in a district energy concept, and where HCE is at the forefront of innovative technology partnerships.
City of Hamilton Market Library Expansion
Construction began in the Spring of 2009 to renovate the Hamilton Farmers' Market and Central Library as part of an initiative to revitalize York Boulevard between Bay and James Streets. HCE succesfully completed an installation and expansion of DES heating for these two landmarks. This was no easy feat and was accomplished through seamless coordination with all construction and renovation crews on site.
