In 2015, Cite Verte or “green city” was recognized as a “a flagship project in the design and implementation of eco-friendly, multi-residential real estate projects that seek to limit social, economic and environmental impacts” by the Institut de développement urbain du Québec (IDU).
A mixed use project including residential and commercial spaces, Cité Verte is built on the grounds of an expansive convent built in the early 1900s. The goal of the project is to create a green neighborhood without any emissions.
Using a district heating plant with three substations for the existing buildings, Cite Verte is fueled by biomass boilers. The boiler’s power is generated by biomess energy from wood pellets, dropped off by trucks returning from delivering agricultural product from an area located three hours away.
Strada radiators equipped with Dynamic Boost Effect (DBE) deliver heat in residential units. Using this system, engineers were able to reduce the temperatures of the main loop to approximately 65 to 80° C. In addition to reducing costs, the units are durable and will withstand the rigors of the residential environment. They also react quickly, so residents can set controls according to occupancy.
