In response to the challenge of climate change, EcoLock Kelowna will demonstrate how commercial developments can be on the leading edge of environmental solutions.

Solar panels

EcoLock will self-generate 105% of its electricity through the use of on-site solar panels.

Rainwater reuse

EcoLock will collect, filter and reuse rainwater within a 62,000-litre tank, located under the building, for all planting irrigation.

Energy efficiency

EcoLock reduces atmospheric COemissions through energy efficiency and uses innovative COsequestration construction techniques.

The EcoLock facility will demonstrate cost-effective, sustainable commercial development that can be located anywhere in North America.

The fully climate controlled, multi-function building will be a five-floor, 112,000-square foot self-storage facility and co-workspace that will self-generate 105% of its electricity through the use of on-site solar panels. It will also collect, filter and reuse rainwater within a 62,000-litre tank, located under the building, for all planting irrigation.

The project received unanimous approval from the City of Kelowna and construction begins this fall, with the opening scheduled in the winter of 2019.

Just BioFiber block

Each block stores 6.5 kilograms
of carbon.

The internal building walls will sequester carbon, using Just BioFiber blocks made in Canada from waste hemp stock.
