This document is about an EcoCité apartment development in Montreal, Canada. Along with the solar thermal applications that the apartment building utilizes, the whole design of the structure was created with sustainability in mind. It is located directly by public transit and was constructed with all nontoxic materials.
The whole structure serves as a solar thermal application. Strategically placed windows and vents let the maximum amount of heat into the building. The materials picked to build with inside were chosen for their capacity to absorb heat and store it. The hot water is provided by a system of 3inch collector tubes.
