Following the Greenbuild trade show's debut on Tuesday, Sci Energy hosted a cocktail party for 225 representatives and potential clients in its first Canadian building, still under construction at 18 York Street. The software company tracks the energy use in buildings and was a platinum sponsor of the four-day green building conference and expo. Working from a sustainable, local platform, En Ville Event Design and Catering was a natural fit for Sci Energy.

The En Ville team designed a seasonal Canadian menu, which featured ingredients ranging from Nova Scotia lobster to wild Ontario blueberries and fit with the event’s overall objectives. Besides making sense from an environmental standpoint, the menu further celebrated Sci Energy’s first Canadian site and showcased local flavours to out-of-towners. “Because the majority of attendees are from the U.S., we wanted to show off Canada,” said Daniel Johnson, co-owner of En Ville.

While the event went off without a hitch, working in an uncompleted office building posed a few challenges. En Ville had to work with the building’s electricians to ensure the event had power. The team also had to split its kitchen because the oven didn’t fit through the doors; the hot kitchen was set up in a hallway, while the cold kitchen took over a conference room.
