Streetsville Library : A Feasibility Study 
Shalini Srivastava-Modi, City of Mississauga

The City of Mississauga targets to achieve massive Corporate GHG reduction by 2050. In order to keep working towards this goal, several projects are being evaluated; one of those was the feasibility of retrofitting Streetsville Library, a standalone building, to EnerPHIT standards and eventually Net-Zero by installing solar panels on the site.
This paper presents the entire process of this undertaking and explains why this Feasibility Study was not deemed successful. The discussion focuses on road blocks and lessons to be learnt to work with the vast pool of existing municipal buildings that are inefficient.

IPD Integrated Project Delivery as a procurement model for Passive House Project
Joseph Day, EllisDon Corporation
Nigel Tai, Diamond Schmitt

Passive House projects are a result of carefully engineered design (consultant input) executed with high-quality site control (constructor input). Collaboration between the two-halves of our industry is fundamental.
IPD, a new project procurement model in Canada, is an inclusive process where all disciplines work as one, creating faster delivery times, lower costs, and a more enjoyable process for the entire team, including the owner. It aligns with the necessary components to a successful PH project:

  • Front end engineering design;
  • Early trade input and constructability review;
  • High-quality construction;
  • Collaborative environment of learning and innovation;
  • Deep understanding of project objectives across disciplines
