Welcome to our annual issue showcasing the winners of the 2020 Canadian Green Building Awards, selected by a jury that included Shelley Craig, Principal at Urban Arts Architecture in Vancouver, Claude Bourbeau, Associate Principal at Provencher Roy Architects in Montreal, and Alan Murphy, Principal at Green Reason Inc. in Toronto. The nine winners reflect the diversity of this year’s competition and the quality of work now being realized in communities large and small across the country.

Three certified projects illustrate how the Passive House program has extended its reach over the past five years: The Charter Telecom HQ, a leading-edge commercial office building in Langford, BC; the Westbay Passive House, a beautiful, light-filled residence on the waterfront in West Vancouver; and the Reach Guest House, the remarkable rehabilitation of a 19th century farmhouse in Prince Edward County, ON into an ultra-low energy contemporary residence. The private sector was also well represented outside of the Passive House program, with three exemplary projects from Ontario: The Rehabilitation and conversion of the 1930s Bata Shoe Factory into a mixed-use building for the community of Batawa; a similar treatment of Cours Bayview Yards, a 1940s municipal building in a former industrial area of Ottawa; and the Sifton Centre, the first structure in a planned 30-hectare net zero mixed-use development in London. Always a source of high quality, high-performance building, particularly in the areas of post-secondary education and supportive housing, the public sector was represented this year by: The Northern Lights College Trades and technology building in Fort St. John, BC, that provides an uplifting environment for students while achieving a remarkable level of energy performance in a harsh northern climate; the Rob and Cheryl McEwen Graduate Studies and Research Building at York University, which combines climate adapted design solutions with a focus on student wellbeing; and Covenant House Vancouver, an exemplar of best practice in the provision of support services for youth at risk. We extend our thanks to our jury (see page 10) for their skill, professionalism, and sincerity in reviewing all of the submitted projects. Thank you, too, to all those who submitted entries this year, many of which we will be featuring in upcoming issues of SABMag or in the regional CaGBC FOCUS publications. And, we especially thank our national sponsors, Masonite Architectural and the Canadian Precast Prestressed Concrete Institute, along with our category sponsors noted below. Without their support we would not be able to mount the annual SABMag Awards program.

news INTRODUCING A NEW WAY TO CONNECT WITH THE RAIC Tanner Morton Following over a year in development, RAIC Connects launched on October 5, 2020 –in honour of World Architecture Day– to further connect members and foster meaningful conversations within the profession. RAIC Connects is a new online community platform accessible to all members of the RAIC, as well as non-members that are active in committees and task forces. The platform is a forum-based website with multiple functionalities including announcements, email notifications, events, and file sharing. Since it was launched, a plethora of discussion posts have explored topics including procurement trends, design responses to COVID restrictions, the licensing process in Canada, working from home during the pandemic for architects, and questions on mass timber, among others. A key feature of the connects platform, and one that has proved invaluable so far, is the development of separate communities around shared topics and points of interest. Some, like the forums for committees, were established at the outset—so that members of these groups can come together and plan their activities and initiatives regardless of their physical location at the time. Other communities were cultivated through shared interests, specializations, and areas of study in the industry. It’s important for users to feel empowered, to use their voice and, as the name of the platform suggests, build lasting, meaningful connections that will benefit themselves—as well as extend the conversation in the greater profession. Having a dedicated space to nurture conversation in the architectural profession will be a benefit for Canadian architecture in both our current moment and what lies ahead in the future. Creating connections and fostering a stronger sense of community is vital for the health of the profession in the years ahead. The RAIC is working hard to make the cultural conversation on architecture as dynamic and engaging as the profession itself.

MANULIFE GLOBAL HEAD OFFICE Our commitment to sustainability begins at home with our Global Headquarters located in Toronto. Already BOMA Best certified, our headquarters achieved LEED Gold and certified our North Tower Fitwel in 2019. Following the success of our LEED program, we developed an internal Fitwel certification guide for our property teams. Currently, over 80% of our portfolio, or 48 million square feet, is certified to a green building standard. We continue to target properties for LEED and other sustainable building certifications.

1600 CARLING In January 2019, 1600 Carling Avenue made history as the first building in Canada to become certified under the LEED version 4.1 for building Operations and Maintenance. With v4.1, LEED has streamlined the certification process by focusing on five data-driven performance outcomes: transportation, water, energy, waste and human experience. Drawing on lessons learned from 1600 Carling, we successfully certified an additional 15 buildings. Our dedication to providing sustainable spaces for our tenants led to the development of our internal sustainable building standards program in 2017. The program provides visibility into our buildings’ performance and allows property teams to collaborate with our tenants on creating sustainable spaces.

WEST BAY PASSIVE HOUSE WEST VANCOUVER, BC

Battersby Howat Architects Residential [Small] Award Jury: A beautiful example of how the transparency, openness and site responsive character of traditional West coast Modern design can be integrated with the high-performance requirements of Passive House. The project is also notable for its prefabricated cross laminated timber structure. The project team also made a commendable effort to provide educational and other benefits for the community, creating a video series about the project and by donating demolition and surplus construction materials to Habitat for humanity.

Located on the West Vancouver waterfront, the West Bay Passive House achieves a rare fusion of beauty and efficiency in its pursuit of net zero energy performance. With a super-insulated, airtight envelope and highly efficient mechanical and electrical systems, the home achieved a Passive House Plus certification, an Energuide Rating confirming zero tonnes of Green House Gas emissions, and net-zero Giga-Joules of energy consumption when measured on an annual basis.

REACH GUESTHOUSE PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY, ON

1

Kearns Mancini Architects Residential [Small] Award Jury: A meticulous rehabilitation and upgrade project, that converts a 19th century four-bedroom farmhouse into a 2-bedroom guesthouse, with the original post and beam structure being enclosed in a new high-performance building envelope. The addition of a Passive House standard kitchen, dining and living area to the rear of the house integrates seamlessly with the original, being barely discernible as a new structure. An elegantly detailed project notable for its restraint.

Originally a four bedroom, one�bathroom house, this 19th century farmhouse was renovated into a two bedroom, twobathroom house incorporating Passive House EnerPHit standards. Conceptually, a new insulated, airtight structure was built over the existing post and beam house. The rear of the building was substantially rebuilt to accommodate a large, double height kitchen, dining and living space. The new front gable window was intentionally oversized, offering visitors a glimpse of the original arched front gable window within. In future, the house will serve as a guesthouse for a new great house on the same property. In the interim, it serves as a

Hobin Architecture Existing Building Upgrade Award Jury: This conversion of a 1940s City Works Yard building into an Innovation Hub demonstrates how the careful and pragmatic adaptive reuse of an unprepossessing building can transform the dynamics of a neighbourhood, create a sense of place, and at the same time support social and cultural continuity. The act of preservation conserves embodied energy in the existing structure and avoids that associated with a new building. The LEED Gold certification is exemplary for an adaptive reuse project.

Also known as The Innovation Centre at Bayview Yards, Cours Bayview Yards is Ottawa’s epicentre for entrepreneurial programs and services. The centre was developed within a 4,460 m2 (48,000ft2) industrial building, originally constructed in the 1940s as a City Workshops facility, and now having historical importance as one of the few survivors of a once sprawling industrial area.

Schöck Isokorb® Structural Thermal Breaks. Prevent condensation and mould, cut heat loss. ▶ Prevent condensation and mould ▶ Reduce heat loss by up to 90% ▶ Improve the effective R-value of your building envelope by up to 50% ▶ Increase warmth of interior floors by up to 19°C/34°F ▶ Most effective way to meet code requirements for continuous insulation

Uninsulated balconies, canopies, slab edges and parapets penetrating building envelopes create thermal bridging between the cold exterior and the warm interior structure that supports them, causing heat loss and condensation. Isokorb® Structural Thermal Breaks prevent thermal bridging by insulating the building envelope at the penetration, while preserving the structural integrity of concrete and steel structures.

Isokorb® Structural Thermal Breaks for concrete construction (above) contain engineered stainless steel rebar for casting into interior and exterior sides of the penetration. Isokorb® Structural Thermal Breaks for steel construction (left) bolt interior steel structures to balcony supports, canopies or rooftop connections.
