Sustainable Design Strategies
This Toronto Green Standard Tier 2 building includes:
Construction Waste Management
91.3% of construction waste diverted from landfill, reducing environmental impact of construction process.
Optimizing Urban Heat Island Performance
Using high-albedo surface materials to cover 75% of non-roof hardscape, the development greatly reduces its potential urban heat island effect, making its surrounding environment comfortably cooler.
Of the construction materials used for the development, over 20% was derived from post and pre-consumer recycled sources by cost, reducing environmental impact of resource production.
Water Efficient Fixtures and Fittings
42% reduction in potable water consumption achieved through installation of low-flow plumbing fixtures.
Energy Efficient Measures
Variable-frequency drive circulation pumps used for the heating and cooling systems help to save related energy costs by over 70%.
Use of a gas-fired modulating boiler reduced costs associated with domestic hot water heating and centralized heating by a combined 50%.
Occupancy sensors are used in corridors and garbage rooms to save energy on lighting when the space is unoccupied.
Lighting on rooftop is directed downward to avoid wasted up-lighting and facilitate wayfinding on nearby pathways, designed to automatically turn off between typically inactive hours of 11 p.m.and 6 a.m. to save energy.
