Property Management

With 40% of energy produced being consumed by buildings and over 50% of buildings operating at less than 60% efficiency, making buildings energy efficient and sustainable are top-of-mind issues for property owners and managers. Black & McDonald is helping them make a difference. During the design, construction and facility maintenance phases, Black & McDonald provides invaluable design critique and advice to ensure maintainability of systems and components, with interoperability to maximize system control and performance, critical for sustainable operations over the facility's whole life plan.

Killam Properties — Boiler / Control Installation

Killam Properties Inc., one of Canada's largest residential landlords, contracted Black & McDonald to upgrade the boiler room components at some of their properties with modern energy efficient equipment.

The project objective was to create a more energy efficient facility. For the duration of the retrofit we mobilized and connected our portable heating trailer to provide heat and domestic hot water to the building with zero down time. The scope of work included the replacement of a cast iron sectional boiler and installation of four high efficiency Lochinvar boilers, a new electrical panel to feed the new boilers and pumps, a duplex pump combo, and a modern control system focused on energy reduction for the buildings' primary mechanical systems. This project is yet another successful example of the design build, boiler replacement by Black & McDonald.
