Waterpark Place

  • This 930,000 ft2, $400M RBC Waterpark Place office tower aims to be the first new speculative office tower in Toronto to achieve LEED Platinum
  • Utilizes Deep Lake Water Cooling
  • Instead of using triple glazing, the tower will establish a high-performance building envelope by ensuring that vision glazing is only used where it provides the most benefit
  • By insulating wall areas near the floor, above the ceiling, and in front of obstructions like pillars, the vision glazing only accounts for approximately half of the exterior walls, providing improved energy efficiency and occupant comfort compared to most other new office buildings that use 70-80% vision glazing
  • A dedicated outdoor air system is used for ventilation, and an independent variable air volume system for delivering the heating and cooling

Roles:

  • sustainability
  • energy modelling
