Major Retrofits 2023 Award Winner: 25 St Clair Avenue East

Charles Marshall and Neel Bavishi will be presenting a case study of the 25 St. Clair Avenue East project. The project represents a leading example of a deep carbon retrofit, transforming an aging structure into an all-electric, high-performance building.

The project, a major renovation of an existing ten-storey federal office building, was selected by the Government of Canada as the flagship model to demonstrate their commitment to achieving a carbon-neutral building portfolio by 2030 as part of its Greening Government Strategy. It employs reuse of existing structure, energy efficiency, electrification of heating and cooling systems, and promotion of occupant wellbeing through biophilic design, while emphasizing sustainability and waste reduction.
