The ground has been broken on the construction of a new net-zero carbon/energy facility in Burlington.
Endress+Hauser’s new Customer Experience Centre will be located just steps from the company’s existing headquarters in Burlington – 1075 Sutton Dr.
The $28 million expansion will be two storeys tall and hopes to achieve the LEED – leadership in energy and environmental design – Gold certification standard, and to function on a net-zero carbon and net-zero energy basis.
According to a recent press release, “The new facility, planned for occupancy in the fall of 2020, will be a full-fledged customer experience centre featuring the company’s second process training unit (PTU) in Canada, as well as other world-class customer features such as a calibration laboratory, an expanded workshop and a large training centre.”

Burlington will also be working with Endress+Hauser on a pilot program to leverage their expertise in Project Management and Lean Management to better understand how the city can support top employers to locate and grow.
“As you may know, the City of Burlington has declared a Climate Emergency, and we are developing a Climate Action Plan,” said Ward. “Seeing Endress+Hauser’s commitment to green initiatives through its dedication to achieve the LEED Gold certification standard and to function on a net-zero carbon and net-zero energy basis in this new build is inspiring, and we are proud to support them in this commitment.”
