Tower Labs

Tower Labs

TowerLabs was founded by Tridel and the MaRS Discovery District.

As Canada's largest builder of green condominiums, Tridel is on the leading edge of a transformation of the built environment. Since 2006, the company has initiated development of approximately 8.5 million square feet of new construction in 22 highrise communities pursuing certification by the LEED green building rating system. On average, Tridel communities reduce electricity by approximately 30% and natural gas consumption by almost 45%. This results in the elimination of over 12,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases each year, and a substantial energy cost savings for condominium owners. At the same time, Tridel has cut water consumption by at least one-third and specifies low-emitting finishes and innovative ventilation solutions to ensure a healthy indoor environment.
