Given a challenging net zero goal that must be completed in 24 months from start of design to move in, what do you do first?
Mohawk College is a leader in sustainability, and the broader community. The college’s new Joyce Centre for Partnership and Innovation is a Canadian pilot project for the CaGBC Zero Carbon Buildings and targeting net zero energy performance. The project, led by a team of expert consultants including mcCallumSather and B+H Architects, and RDH Building Science, has been driven by a net zero energy budget that the college has set. The project has already garnered national attention including that of The Joyce Family Foundation and a number of awards.
The project design team was hired in May 2016, construction started in October 2016, and was completed in August 2018. This presentation will demonstrate how the project team navigated the challenges the mandate within an accelerated schedule to qualify for the federal government’s funding deadline.
