Humber River Hospital
A lean, green and $2.13-billion facility, Humber River Hospital leverages the latest technology to save operational energy. The robust building envelope improves patient comfort and increases infection control, thus reducing hospital stays.
The first hospital to use 100% fresh air ventilation and robotic delivery.
We wrote the sustainability performance requirements using a combination of requirements from over seven different rating systems.
We are proud to say that this building met its carbon reduction target 15 years ahead of its deadline and it is one of the most energy efficient hospitals in North America. Instead of paying large utility bills, millions of dollars of annual energy savings have been directed towards patient care.
