The Pan Am Centre is a 14,000 sq.m (150,000 sq.ft) facility located at 16 Main Street South, Unionville, Ontario. The facility has three (3) floors above grade and one (1) below grade. Due to changes in building usage and operational needs over time, the energy efficiency of a building degraded, and the cost to operate and maintain the building increased. The facility is a multi-sport facility for badminton, table tennis and water polo. Within the facility are a Pool area, Gymnasium, Warm-up Hall (small gymnasium), and various multi-purpose rooms. Markham District Energy provides heating and cooling at the facility. The RCx project was executed in 5 distinct phases: Planning, Investigation, Implementation, Hands-off and Ongoing Commissioning. 

Commissioned systems were BAS, cooling, chilled water; IT rooms ACs, heating, hot water, UHs, RHs, steam humidification system/steam boilers, air distribution, AHUs, FPBx, VAVs, FCUs, pool systems, pool dehumidification, building pressurization, fresh air flows, building night audit, lighting system, envelope thermal imaging etc. All findings were split into low-cost/no-cost measures, capital expenditures, deficiencies, and quick fixes. Saving calculations were provided at the end of the investigation. Actions were prioritized, planned, and executed in the implementation phase. All measures were re-verified after implementation. Training and persistence strategies were provided in hands-off and ongoing phases. All implemented ECMs and OIMs were either tested or measured to ensure savings. The new building energy and cost baseline index was calculated, showing actual savings in the building.
