Charlie West is a prominent residential condominium located in the heart of downtown Kitchener, South Western Ontario, Canada. Because of its height as one of the tallest buildings in the city and with quality a major cornerstone, fire protection was a primary consideration when choosing insulation for the exterior wall system. Occupant comfort was also paramount, and the suites were designed to create an optimum indoor environment. To that end, thermal performance and sound dampening were added to the list of goals.
The Ken Soble Tower project sought to rehabilitate a post-war apartment in Hamilton, Ontario. The building was completely upgraded, inside and out, to achieve Passive House standard, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by an impressive 94%.
The success of the Ken Soble Tower retrofit demonstrates a pathway to revitalizing similar aging building stock across North America through ultra-low energy retrofits.
What we do with existing buildings determines the legacy we leave for future generations. Faced with dwindling energy supplies and the increasingly obvious effects of climate change, it’s not enough to set higher standards for new buildings.
The Lakehouse, formerly known as Homewood, is a 100-year-old lakefront cottage, originally built as a seasonal retreat by an executive of the Robert Simpson Company, a famous Canadian retailer. Intended primarily for summer use, it featured no insulation, no basement, thin exterior and interior walls, and windows and doors that were as old as the cottage itself.
