3 News story on Donadeo ICE Donadeo family honours its past and helps build engineering’s futureA major gift from an alumnus Lorenzo Donadeo, who graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering in 1981, his wife Donna, and their family is enabling the University of Alberta Faculty of Engineering to grow student enrolment and increase its capacity for teaching and research.Donadeo is a co-founder, CEO and director of Calgary-based Vermilion Energy Inc. Established 20 years ago, the company is recognized as a top employer in Alberta and across Canada, as well as in the Netherlands and France. He says the gift and naming of the centre is a respectful recognition of family sacrifices made a generation ago. In recognition of the gift, the facility the family is supporting will bear their name: the Donadeo Innovation Centre for Engineering.The gift announcement was made during a Dean’s Reception kicking off Alumni Weekend. Referring to the U of A as “an internationally recognized top-tier engineering university,” Lorenzo Donadeo said he and his family are excited about supporting the school and growth in the Faculty of Engineering.The gift is “a way for us to say thank you for the great work the Faculty of Engineering does,” he said, adding that engineers and leaders of the future will benefit from the gift.Read the full story here.

25 Sustainable Practices & Technology The Donadeo ICE building has been designed to achieve, at a minimum, the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System Silver certification for Core and Shell development.Responsible construction practices coupled with several leading edge technologies will reduce resource and energy use, minimize environmental impact and improve indoor air quality.For example:Considerate land use: no green space is being lostFan Walls: Instead of using large energy-intensive fans to draw in fresh air it will employ Fan Wall technology that uses an array of smaller fans that operate at variable speeds, on demand Energy use is dramatically reduced and maintenance costs are lowered significantly.
26 …Sustainable Practices & Technology continued Chilled Beams: enable the heating and cooling of a building to be decoupled from its ventilation.Instead of air being used as the primary heating and cooling medium, water is used to heat or cool the air in the occupied spaces. This results in a significant reduction in the size of the main air handling equipment and its associated ducts throughout the building and in the total annual amount of energy required to heat and cool the building.Reducing hot water: Instead of continuously circulating hot water so you don’t have to let water run down the drain while you wait for heated water to come out of the spout, this problem has been eliminated by heating water on-demand at the tap, saving on heating costs and eliminating the energy used to constantly pump hot water through a building.Reducing water use: Low-flow bathroom fixtures will dramatically reduce water use.Motion-sensing light switches: When you walk into a room the lights automatically turn on and when you leave, the lights turn off.Monitors to track energy use installed in Donadeo ICE and CMEMore details about the sustainability of Donadeo ICE can be found at: Faculty of Engineering website.
