Ontario Architects Association Building Retrofit – 2030 Challenge
Sustainable EDGE is designing the strategic retrofitting of the Ontario Architect Association head office in Toronto to meet the net zero carbon 2030 Challenge target, as well as maximizing indoor environmental quality. Working with David Fujiwara Architect, TransSolar EnergieTechnik and Gottesman Associates, we are employing an innovative design for thermal envelope upgrades, solar shading, 100% outdoor air displacement ventilation with biowall air cleaning. The remaining minimal mechanical systems energy will be supplied by solar energy on the rooftop.
