Kīšik Towers is a 14-storey residence tower located on campus at the University of Regina. This facility contains: studio, two bedroom, and four bedroom apartments; multi-purpose rooms, and a community kitchen.
Mechanical System Description
This facility utilizes a DOAS system with heat reclaim and in slab radiant heating and cooling
Innovative & Sustainable Design
Radiant slab heating and cooling is not commonly used in this type of facility. It provides a low EUI by cascading chilled water, in turn increasing the central plant chiller efficiency. Low flow water fixtures were used to reduce consumption. This was also the first project on campus where an innovative steam reducing station was designed to save costs with improved controllability. There were two steam and chilled water tunnel expansions which successfully closed the campus steam and chilled water loops.
