Congratulations to HH Angus’ long-term client, Cadillac Fairview, on a very notable achievement: All 6 towers of Canada’s iconic Toronto Dominion Centre have been certified LEED EB: O&M Platinum.
This is a significant achievement in sustainability. The TD Centre’s capital investment, operating capabilities, and green initiative helps to lessen the property’s environmental footprint, and reaffirms the TD Centre’s position as one of the most sustainable office communities in North America.
In order to achieve LEED EB: O&M platinum certification, strict, measurable and actual performance metrics had to be met, in areas such as energy and water reduction, waste diversion, transportation, electricity, sustainable construction and infrastructure, and occupant engagement.
HH Angus & Associates has been working with Cadillac Fairview for several years on infrastructure upgrades to support this certification. By way of background, we were the original base building engineers for the TD Centre (Canada’s first skyscraper, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe), and have been working at the complex ever since on renovations, upgrades and fitouts.
Our work enabling the certification includes Mechanical & Electrical (M&E) improvements to support LEED® EB standards, M&E infrastructure upgrades in conjunction with building envelope renewal, infrastructure upgrades to increase tenant space and reworking of the plaza area to improve drainage.
