|2012 Water Benchmarking Pilot Report
Performance of the Canadian Office Sector
The REALpac 2012 Water Benchmarking Pilot Report: Performance of the Canadian Office Sector includes the results of REALpac's first Water Benchmarking Pilot Survey. A total of 83 office properties participated in the Survey by submitting complete, whole building water use data for one or more of the calendar years between 2009 and 2011. The purpose of this survey was to test and refine REALpac's water benchmarking methodology. Following in the footsteps of REALpac's successful Energy Benchmarking Program, this report will ultimately be used to provide commercial office
building owners and managers an opportunity to benchmark their building
water consumption against peers in the industry.
REALpac's Water Benchmarking program stems from a research paper completed earlier this
year titled Water Management: A Benchmark for Canadian Office Buildings, and other industry analyses currently under review.
