Robinson Place wins 2016 Canadian Consulting Engineering Award

Robinson Place in Peterborough Ontario became the first government building in Canada to earn the prestigious LEED Platinum certification in August of 2014.  The building was awarded certification using the LEED for Existing Building: Operations and Maintenance (EBOM) rating system.  Morrison Hershfield were the consulting engineers responsible for sustainability, retro-commissioning, and mechanical/electrical design.  My role on this project was to develop and implement a strategy to achieve LEED Platinum certification.  The building had a number of impressive features including:

  • Green roof
  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Storm water retention cistern and pond
  • Energy star score of 89
  • Community garden
  • Recreated natural habitat

The building was awarded a Canadian Consulting Engineering Award on October 25, 2016.  This was not the first award Robinson Place has won either.  The list of awards includes:

  • 2016 Canadian Consulting Engineering Award of Excellence
  • 2016 Consulting Engineers Ontario Award of Excellence
  • 2015 CaGBC Greater Toronto Chapter Existing Building Innovation Award
