We are pleased to announce we are part of the team with ZAS Architects and Bucholz McEvoy Architects that will design the new TRCA Administration Building. The building will provide over 9,000m² of adaptive office space and demonstrate TRCA’s commitment to green infrastructure.
“This new facility will reduce operating costs, while helping TRCA to deliver the best possible customer service and support, and will serve as a living example of green building best practices.” – TRCA
The intention is to demonstrate municipal, provincial and federal strategies, use innovative healthy materials and adopt passive house design principles. Plans also include renewable energy, innovative wastewater management and integration with the ravine landscape.
As part of achieving these goals, the project is targeting LEEDv4 Platinum, WELL Silver and is a CaGBC Zero Carbon Building Standard pilot project. We are working as LEED, WELL and Zero Carbon Building Standard consultants for the design team.
Zero Carbon Building Standard is a new initiative created by the Canada Green Building Council designed to make carbon emissions the key indicator for building performance. As part of the 16 project pilot program, this TRCA project will help further development of the standard, plus accompanying resources and education. We are looking forward to contributing to the development of this new National standard. Learn more from the CaGBC.
