Air Conditioning/Air Circulation

Our air conditioning and circulation systems exceed all national health standards. State-of-the-art equipment provides continuous fresh air changes and allows a flexible temperature-controlled environment. Humidifiers help combat the effects of our city's dry climate. High efficiency filters throughout the building ensure that air is clean.

All mechanical systems at TransCanada Tower are monitored by a computer system programmed to provide optimum comfort and significant energy savings. You can help keep your office cool and electricity costs down by leaving your perimeter window blinds in the down position and closing them in bright sunlight.

HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning) is provided as part of the lease between 06:00 hours and 18:00 hours on working days. On weekends and holidays it is supplied between 09:00 hours and 16:00 hours (if requested). Please email TCTService@hrreit.ca to request HVAC or lighting outside of the aforementioned times.

All HVAC or lighting provided outside scheduled hours will be charged to the tenants concerned.

If a problem arises with your local air-conditioning please contact Tenant Services at 403-215-2371 or TCTservice@hrreit.ca.

Disposal of Larger Items of Garbage

Background

Recycling and the disposal of garbage in the TransCanada Tower is a major undertaking. On a daily basis we fill three large cages with paper for recycling and have 5 to 8 metric tonnes of garbage removed weekly.



The disposal of garbage placed in the compactor is subject to a payment partly determined by weight. Certain items such as furniture, large objects and binders cannot be disposed of in the compactor and require separate disposal, again involving haulage and disposal charges.



Space is allocated on the dock for the handling of garbage and recycling. This accommodates the normal daily amount of paper recycling and garbage that comes down for disposal from the offices and shops. The dock is very busy throughout the day and although we can handle additional amounts we do need notice to ensure we have the room to locate it and the facilities to deal with it.



Procedures

In order to ensure that we have the capacity to handle higher temporary volumes of garbage and recycling and to allocate the cost of their disposal to the people who use the service the following procedures are in place:

  • Notice of any large items for disposal must be provided, in writing, to tenant services 2 working days before it is to be removed from the your floor. This includes furniture and garbage or recycling created by filing purges.
  • Any additional costs specifically associated with the disposal of the items will be passed on to the tenant.
  • Large items will not be collected by the cleaning staff without prior approval. Large items for disposal may not be left in freight elevator lobbies or corridors as this constitutes a safety hazard.
