Willie Perez, Mechanical engineer for the project took time out of his busy schedule today today to give a lecture to students in VIU’s Green Building and Renewable Energy Program.  Willie discussed the mechanical systems and the integrated design process that are making the Field Station special.

Acting as an educational resource on the mid-island about green building technology and sustainability is anticipated as an important value added benefit of this building.   We hope in the future to add renewable energy sources such as photovoltaics and  make all the electrical metering aspects of the building and the building management ‘dashboard” available in real time so that the performance of various components can be further used for a large variety of educational purposes.
