Humber College Buildings H + Nx
Campus buildings H and Nx boasts features of double glazed windows and metal spandrel panels. Morrison Hershfield’s role includes parametric energy modeling, building envelope design, and mechanical and electrical design. We worked together with our architectural partner on a deep energy retrofit with a goal to reduce Humber’s source energy by 50% and associated carbon emissions by 30%. (Etobicoke, ON)
The Livmore – Bay & Gerrard
The new 43-story high-rise rental building contains 594 residential units. Morrison Hershfield is providing building envelope consulting, energy modeling, sustainability, measurement and verification and energy incentive management services. Our bundled services provided a cost-effective way to achieve the projects sustainability objectives, with the overall target of LEED® Gold certification. (Toronto, ON)
Water Facility Assessments
The project involves the assessment of over 800 Toronto Water buildings and structures situated on 143 facilities such as water and wastewater treatment plants, water and wastewater pumping stations, yards and labs. Morrison Hershfield conducted on site facility condition assessments and aerial photography and infrared scans, and then mapped the portfolio in a GIS. The findings collected are consolidated into a database with recommendations for repair for 25 years, risk ratings and opinions of probable cost, in an effort to assist with Toronto Water’s asset management plan.

Humber College Building N
Building N is a 98,000 SF facility on the North Campus. Morrison Hershfield provided design services including assisting in the design of envelope recladding, structural upgrades to support the new envelope, energy modeling, and mechanical and electrical systems re-design. The deep energy retrofit on the B+H Architects designed Humber College Building N reduced approximately 29% in energy consumption, 43% in GHG emissions and over $20,000 in annual operational costs.
