Moderator: Andrew Peel

Riverside Tower Retrofit
Andrew Peel, Peel Passive Consulting

The 255 Riverside Drive Tower retrofit is North America’s first live-in tower EnerPHit project. The challenges of meeting EnerPHit on a large building are compounded by residents staying during construction work. Learn how the team has approached the design and construction to reimagine what’s possible in retrofitting an existing tower.

Market Transformation - Kickstarting Large-Scale EnerPHit Projects in Ontario (Ken Soble Tower) 
Ya'el Santopinto, ERA Architects
Cara Sloat, Reinbold Engineering Group
Graeme Stewart, ERA Architects

Chris Van Dongen, Entuitive Corporation
Joshua Vanwyck, JMV Consulting

Using the 500 MacNab Tower Renewal EnerPHit project as a case study, this session will examine considerations related to: design; approvals; procurement; and construction as compared to a traditional retrofit. Panelists will include the Architect, Passive House Consultant, Mechanical Engineer and Construction Manager. Since large-scale EnerPHit projects are still uncommon in the Ontario market, this session will outline learnings, challenges and recommendations to aid building owners, design teams and constructors in engaging in EnerPHit projects in Ontario.

Canada's Largest EnerPHit Study: Twin Towers, North Vancouver, BC
Jeff Clarke-Janzen and Ben Mills, HiH Energy

If implemented, Twin Towers in North Vancouver would be the world’s largest multifamily EnerPHit project (combined 26 stories and TFA of 9,760 m2). HiH Energy and Morrison Hershfield performed a feasibility study for BC Housing & Affordable Housing to outline a retrofit pathway to meet EnerPHit requirements as well as complete operational de-carbonization. At 42 years of age, the envelope components require attention and mechanical systems are end of life. HiH will discuss the approach to this challenging problem, results (including 3rd party costing) and recommendations to assist other groups to get the most out of their EnerPHit project.
