Canadian institutions are rapidly discovering the benefits of clean, green, and sustainable operation.

Ristech provides solutions designed to minimize negative impact on the natural environment and maximize indoor environmental quality by means of thoughtful design, natural and biodegradable materials plus the use of natural light.

Consult with one of our specialists today to find out how your institution can maximize its cost savings and minimize its carbon footprint.

Space Planning

As the role of libraries has become more diverse, facilitators are met with a host of 21st century challenges.

Once a place for finding information, public libraries have evolved to become a place for a community to make connections in a world where information is less a resource and more a commodity.

Our experts are excited to work with you to create workspace solutions and efficient patron flow for today's multifaceted library environment.

Information Accessibility

More than 4 billion documents and artifacts are held in public trust by archives, historical societies, libraries, museums, and scientific research collections across North America.

Lack of accessibility puts many of these items out of reach from the general public, despite their inherent value to society.

Ristech is focused on helping your institution bridge the gap between the past and present by providing easy to use imaging technologies that keep history accessible.
