NEW LABS COMING SOON


 

Over the past 10 years, we have constructed a number of Living City Labs at The Living City Campus to help advance new concepts in green infrastructure and building design, and provide a controlled environment for the evaluation of innovative products and practices.

The labs are equipped with state-of-the-art monitoring instruments and integrated into a central data acquisition and storage network that allows for real-time performance displays and enables our partners to have easy access to data.

Experienced staff from Toronto and Region Conservation’s (TRCA) Sustainable Technologies Evaluation Program (STEP) work closely with our academic and industry partners to design and operate the labs, conduct independent third-party product evaluations and provide logistical services tailored to client needs.

TRCA also helps to communicate results and provide best practices guidance to industry and government.
