Thompson Rivers University (TRU) has been a world leader in campus sustainability and here you’ll get the benefit of the university’s findings on electrified nursing building design and operation, and implications for campus infrastructure planning. Matt Milovick and Diego Mandelbaum provide a case study of TRU’s first 100% electric facility, the Chappell Family Building for Nursing and Population Health -- a state-of-the-art simulation center and research lab. They highlight solutions for recovering and repurposing energy and heat for ventilation and illustrate the tradeoffs involved in balancing operating cost with carbon benefits. They examine how lessons learned to-date are informing TRU’s sustainability plans for the future, and TRU’s decision to move forward with an electrified district energy system connecting all buildings on campus, with aspirations to be a fossil fuel free campus by 2030.
