Calgary, AB, December 6, 2017 – Camfil, the leading global manufacturer of air filtration products, awards H&R REIT MSLP – F1RST Tower, of Calgary, Alberta with the prestigious 5-Star Energy award. F1RST Tower qualified for this award by demonstrating their continued commitment to saving energy while providing quality indoor air throughout their Alberta facility. F1RST Tower’s selection of air filters have the 5-Star Energy Cost Index (ECI) rating placing the company in the top 20% of customers worldwide that have chosen to make a difference in energy usage globally.
Presented by Jon Holmes of Camfil Canada, the award recognizes facilities that conserve our natural resources and put their employees, visitors and customers first when improved indoor air quality is considered.

F1RST Tower was nominated by Jon Holmes, Camfil’s Territory Manager for Alberta, who presented the award to Jon Cromwell, H&R REIT MSLP’s Operations Manager, on November 1, 2017. After 14 months, F1RST Tower reports significant savings in their facility’s energy, waste, and labour, and now proudly displays the award at their facility. “By selecting the Camfil product lines, including the HiFlo ES bag filters, we continue to provide a high level of air filtration to our occupied spaces with reduced labour for installation.
