The National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York was completed in 2014 and was designed to resonate with its surrounding context. With floor to ceiling glass windows providing light and views across the site, it was necessary to devise a customised solution that allowed for heating within the concrete floor. This was one of the reasons to choose for the Jaga Mini Canal trench heater.
The Mini Canal reacts quickly to any fluctuations in temperature, and the Low-H20 technology cuts carbon emissions by 10%. A super conductive and efficient heating system, with a low water content and ultra-fast heat exchanger, ensuring maximum heat and low energy consumption. Its minimal recess depth of 9 cm makes it ideal for buildings with large windows to eliminate any potential drafts, without blocking views.
Designed by Snøhetta, the pavilion has a LEED Gold certification and hereby follows the Memorial’s sustainability guidelines. The building is optimised to perform with minimal energy and the installation of Jaga’s underfloor heating system helps to achieve this, while reducing operating costs.
