La Ruche School

Audit Re-Commissioning

16,000 m2

Magog, Québec

Sommets School Board

EnerZam is carrying out a Re-Commissioning audit mandate at the Sports block of La Ruche high schoolin Magog. The building, built in 2011, is experiencing many comfort problems which led our client toask us for an audit assignment. We study the diagnoses of all of these problems as well as thecomplete diagnosis of the building. We are obliged to use all of our knowledge in the sizing andoperation of swimming pools (water treatment, filling and maintaining the water level, heating,cooling, ventilation, calculation of air conditioning, ventilation, dehumidification needs). We alsouse our knowledge in energy efficiency (geothermal energy and heat recovery) and in particularcontrol systems to meet this mission. We therefore carried out a complete study of the HVACinstallations which led to several interventions such as: reprogramming of the construction system,particularly for geothermal energy, air reblending, adjustment of schedules. The problems areresolved, the building more efficient and the customer in control of the operation

Commissioning Joule Analytix


Canada Border Services Agency

The goal is to implement a continuous commissioning solution for the Canada Border Services Agency.An energy saving mission was carried out on this building one year before the start date of ourservice offering. So the customer did not expect us to find a problematic defect in the building. Inthe first report, we found 26 defects. Addressing these deficiencies would result in annual savingsof $ 8,000. This result illustrates the power of our automated fault detection and diagnosistechnique compared to conventional methods and insufficient data analysis in traditional energysaving missions.

Feasibility study

Old Chelsea, Québec

Leisure and relaxation

Carry out a feasibility study for the conversion of Vapor Oil Boilers, in order to take advantage ofthe arrival of natural gas. EnerZam has been able to meet the demand by producing the analysisnecessary to substantiate and support the recommendations made to the client. The proposedrecommendation (among 3 different options) proposed a reduction in GHG emissions of 53.4 tonnes ofCO2 / year, by abandoning oil for natural gas and increasing the efficiency of the boilers. Our firmsuggested replacing an oil-fired boiler with a condensing boiler, connected to natural gas, whichcould also be used for the future thermal power plant project.

Brookfield Global Integrated Solutions (BGIS) commissioned EnerZam for an ASHRAE Level 2 energystudy as well as for measurement and verification. The objective of the project was to proposeperformance improvement measures to reduce energy consumption and reduce greenhouse gas emissionswhile improving occupant comfort. The client’s goal with the M&V was to establish the real energybalance of the building. The energy study and the M&V, allowed us to establish a list of performanceimprovement measures proposing a reduction in consumption of 22% with savings of $ 169,436 per year,a return on investment of 15 years and reduction of greenhouse gases by around 263 tonnes of CO2. Weused our IES-VE simulation software to assess the effectiveness of the measures. The main measuresproposed were: the addition of a geothermal system, installation of variable speed drives on thewater towers, installation of solar domestic hot water preheating, addition of variable speed driveson the ventilation units, modification control sequences for the boilers in block 1100.

Gatineau, Québec

CSSS Gatineau

The EnerZam team commissioned the geothermal system at CHSLD La Pieta for the CSSS de Gatineau. Ithad never been operational since its installation. The mandate included commissioning the system inheating and air conditioning mode, reviewing the design, defining the scope of work and functionalphases. We therefore carried out the calculations necessary to validate the selection of equipmentand then carried out site visits to ensure the conformity of the work. We also validated thebalancing reports. Finally, we were able to carry out the functional tests with the controlcontractor in 2 stages (1 for the heating season and 1 for the air conditioning season). A fewdeficiencies were raised and subsequently corrected. The geothermal system is now operating as itshould.


Esco Project Consulting - Measurement and Verification

Laval, Québec


The CISSS de Laval mandated the firm Enerzam to review the report of an SEA and issue a conciliationreport for this project. The objective of this report is to present to the ESE the position of theCISSS de Laval concerning the reconciliation of the energy savings of the project at the end of year2. This analysis has highlighted certain differences in the interpretation. of the contract forconstruction savings. As an external energy efficiency professional, EnerZam has had to addresscertain knowledge gaps in this area on the part of the SEE. We were able to identify someshortcomings; maintenance savings recorded during the installation phase, energy savings recorded inthe reconciliation of the first two years, the SEE uses the pre-project efficiencies and tariffs,adjustments (which lower consumption) not considered in the report presented by the SEE. Ourexpertise in this project will have enabled the public body to have an accurate picture of thesituation of its project. The conciliation made by EnerZam will also have made it possible tomaintain a good climate between the different parties.

Gatineau, Québec

CSSS Gatineau

The EnerZam team carried out a recommissioning project at the Gatineau hospital for the CSSS deGatineau. Opportunities for energy savings have been found in the new construction of the ER. Therewere flaws in the way the design check worked. The EnerZam team also found great potential forenergy savings through re-engineering of control sequences and suggestions for retrofitting energyrecovery systems at Fluace Hospital. Many other opportunities for improved control have been found,involving all HVAC installations. We were also mandated for the Commissioning of the 2implementation phases. Our project manager managed the coordination of sub-contractors (control andbalancing) and ensured that customer requirements were met. With the help of this tool and theexpertise of the EnerZam team, the client had access to a continuous commissioning approach thatpushed their buildings towards excellence and guaranteed them a persistence of energy saved. EnerZamprovided engineering service on a monthly basis using this tool through the continuous optimizationoperation and Measurement and Verification (M&V).
