The Association of Consulting Engineering Companies recently honoured the Pearl Street Energy Centre project with an Ontario Engineering Project Award.


We are delighted that the Enwave’s Pearl Street Energy Centre (PSEC) project has been recognized for its technical innovation and positive contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the City of Toronto.

The objective of the PSEC project is to expand Toronto’s district heating and cooling distribution and capacity using low carbon technologies by installing 3600 tons of cooling and 62,000 Mbh (thousand BTU’s per hour) of heating, using water source heat pumps (heat reclaim chillers). Enwave’s ‘Green Heat’ offering will be made possible by the installation of new assets that make use of waste heat while producing cooling and hot water. HH Angus is serving as Prime Consultant and Mechanical and Electrical Design Engineers for the project.

Toronto’s buildings generate more than half the city's greenhouse gas emissions. New technologies, such as Enwave's expanded heat delivery system, will play a critical role in reducing the city’s cumulative carbon footprint. When fully utilized, Enwave’s low carbon heating facility will provide enough low-carbon heating to reduce emissions in Toronto by approximately 11,600 tCO2e, the equivalent of converting over 10 million square feet of office space to net zero. Providing Enwave clients with low to zero carbon heating and cooling solutions for their buildings will contribute to making them environmentally and socially responsible in Canada’s goal to reduce and potentially eliminate greenhouse gases.

HH Angus has been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for 2019 – an honour we credit to our clients and staff who inspire us to continually strive for leadership excellence, client service and innovation. The prestigious program – now in its 26th year – recognizes the overall business performance and growth of best-in-class, Canadian-owned companies with revenue of 5 million or more.

“We’re thrilled to be a 2019 winner of the Best Managed Companies program,” said Harry Angus, President, HH Angus. “We’ve been in business for 100 years and fortunate to work with clients who have trusted us with their important projects – some for over 70 years. Our clients and our dedicated staff continually inspire us to improve client service and innovate.”

We understand that our people are essential to our success. We’re investing in their skills and career development, as well as investing in advanced technology, an innovation platform, and workplace collaboration tools allowing them to deliver tailored solutions to our clients’ engineering, design and business challenges.

This year, a panel of judges evaluated over 700 companies in four key areas: strategy, capability, commitment, and financials. As this was HH Angus’ first time applying for the program, we are especially honoured to have been selected.

HH Angus is no stranger to firsts, however. “By remaining independent with a long-standing, focused and nimble team, we’ve been able to consistently recognize trends in the market place and think proactively on our clients’ behalf,” says Tom Halpenny, Vice President, HH Angus. “We’ve worked with clients who entrusted us to deliver some of Canada’s industry-leading advances and they continue to give our team the opportunity to do great work.”

Those advances include landmark buildings, such as the first skyscraper in Canada (the Toronto Dominion Tower), the world’s first stadium with a motorized retractable roof (SkyDome/Rogers Centre), the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), BMO Field Expansion and Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) – the largest P3 healthcare project in North America. We also recently received the 2018 Schreyer Award – Canada’s top consulting engineering award recognizing innovation and technical excellence.

“This year’s Best Managed winners are a testament to the success found when businesses invest in talent, innovate intentionally, and think long-term,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “These companies should be proud of this achievement, and their responsibility in acting as role models for other Canadian businesses.”

Communiqué de presse

HH Angus’ headquarters building, owned by Rosseau Real Estate, has won a ‘Greatest Energy Reduction’ award in CivicAction’s 2015 “Race to Reduce”. The awards, presented at a gala event on November 7, 2015, celebrate CivicAction’s smart energy office challenge winners.  We’re very proud that HH Angus’ site reduced energy consumption by 17.78%! We congratulate our friends at Rosseau Real Estate, and look forward to continuing our joint focus on energy efficiency.

From CivicAction’s press release Nov 9, 2015:

Participants in the smart energy office challenge took sustainability to new heights, celebrating a drop of close to 193 million ekWh or 12.1 per cent in collective energy use over four years, charging past the program’s four-year target of 10 per cent. That’s equivalent to taking more than 4,200 cars off the road and putting $13.7 million back into office landlords’ and tenants’ pockets.

“We set an ambitious target four years ago and today, we exceeded it,” said Sevaun Palvetzian, CEO, CivicAction. “The Race to Reduce is a great example of what’s possible when people from opposite sides of the table come together and work towards a shared goal.”

With winning buildings located in Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga, Vaughan, Markham and Toronto, the final Race to Reduce awards ceremony saw representation from leading office building owners, tenants, and workers from across the region and showed how little energy is needed to run a building while meeting tenants’ and their employees’ needs. CivicAction’s Race to Reduce is one of the largest regional energy challenges in the world, with 196 buildings participating representing more than 69 million square feet or 42 per cent of the commercial office space in the region.

Sixty-four buildings of various sizes and ages earned a Greatest Energy Reduction Award by achieving a 10 per cent or greater reduction across the four years of the Race (2011-2014). Twenty-one of these buildings reduced their energy use by more than 20 percent.
