Public Services and Procurement Canada has released a video introducing the early visions of its planned project to renovate the existing Arthur Meighen Building in Toronto into a Zero Carbon building.
It was announced in May, 2017, that the building would be among 16 pilot projects in the Canada Green Building Council’s (CaGBC) Zero Carbon Buildings program.
DIALOG is the lead consultant for this federal government project, providing architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, structural, mechanical and electrical engineering, and sustainability consulting to design a carbon neutral building.
A feasibility study done on the 1950s 10-storey building determined that its current greenhouse gas emissions could be reduced by more than 80%.
When complete it will include solar panels along with a geothermal heating and cooling system.
