Humber River Hospital

We worked closely with HOK Architects and wrote the performance standards for this new facility. The venue has now established a precedent for hospitals and government facilities across North America. Our design team made use of Energy Use Intensity (EUI) and produced a result 47% lower than the Energy Star Portfolio Manager threshold. Now, the building saves more than $3 million in utility costs and those savings have gone straight towards improved patient care.

With innovative rainwater harvesting, the inn now experiences water savings of 35% over baseline while still reaching five-star performance. Domestic (potable) hot water is preheated by the innovative heat recovery system from the commercial kitchen and solar hot water is used in the laundry. Biomass boilers make renewable energy available by using wood from a renewable woodlot while all products were selected for full scope, ecologically sound and social sustainability. Solar panels were installed to create local renewable energy and reduce the facilities environmental impact and create a sustainable community.Awards

Winner of two prestigious Canada Green Building Council awards:

● Greater Toronto Chapter’s Innovation Award
● National Award for Excellence in Green Building

Fogo Island Inn

We were the sustainability strategists for the The Fogo Island Inn, the crown jewel of a socio-economic transformation on this island community. This award-winning facility has attracted Gwyneth Paltrow, Rick Mercer and Justin Trudeau, Canada’s Prime Minister.
