An Environmentally Conscience Company
Jacobs & Thompson is always working hard to be a “Green” fabrication partner. Being a responsible corporate citizen has been a top priority when designing our waste recycling programs and our various energy conservation plans. J&T has enrolled in regional and provincial energy conservation initiatives, including our recent partnership in the BOMA Energy and Conservation and Demand Program.
Energy Efficiency Retrofit Programs
In 2016, Jacobs & Thompson completed a series of heat reclamation and retrofit projects at its Toronto facility. This included redirecting warm exhaust air from our compressor and chiller units back into our facility using an in-line fan system.
A block wall of our facility was insulated using a Roxul mineral wool with a metalized foil surface, providing an R-8 insulation value.
Jacobs & Thompson also implemented a lighting retrofit at its Toronto facility, inside and outside of the plant. Our 416 T-12 fixtures were replaced with 165 T-8 and light reflective PL Type fixtures.
