The building that houses our servers Colosse and Helios at Université Laval in Québec  City was awarded the Énergia – Bâtiment existant – secteur institutionnel prize by the Association québécoise de la maîtrise de l’énergie for it's impressive energy efficiency. This concrete tower originally built as a home for a Van de Graff accelerator was revamped a few years ago and transformed into a server room. Its cylindrical geometry and an innovative design both contributed in making it a particularly efficient building.
