Good work goes on front street.

This new, 46-storey office tower at the northeast corner of Front Street and Simcoe Street will reshape the downtown Toronto skyline. The development will feature 1.4 million square feet of office space, 340 parking stalls, and approximately 12,290 square feet of retail space. Smith + Andersen is engaged as the mechanical consultant on the new office tower, which is targeting both LEED Platinum and WELL Silver. Footprint is also engaged in this project, and is providing energy modelling services.

Our team designed perimeter diffusers that use high-induction laminar flow technology to optimize the high-speed discharge of air, with low acoustic power to heat the windows in the winter. This system eliminates the need for low level heat even though the building is made up of floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

The BAS system is Internet Protocol (IP)-based, powered over ethernet, and is connected to the common communication backbone. Meters will be provided on all major systems for verification and to track energy usage.

Our team is providing a dedicated outdoor air system, introduced at the perimeter, and directed into the compartment system for interior zones, using CO2 sensors that adjust fresh air. The building will have a cistern that re-uses water for irrigation, toilets and urinals (up to level 10) as well as water-efficient fixtures in all washrooms.

The boiler system will be a variable primary high-efficiency condensing plant with make-up air units that feature enthalpy recovery wheels to generate exhaust air energy recovery.
