More Awards for 500 MacNab Ken Soble Tower EnerPHit

The Canada Green Building Council (CAGBC) unveiled this year’s winners of the CAGBC Awards during the 2022 Building Lasting Change conference’s Gala event. The annual awards celebrate innovative projects, teams and individuals that have made positive contributions to Canada’s green building sector.

Our project Ken Soble tower won in the category Green Building Excellence, Deep Carbon Retrofit:
The Ken Soble tower is considered North America’s first EnerPHit retrofit of a residential tower, and the largest residential Passive House retrofit in the world. Measures implemented, including a high-performance building envelop and upgrades to its mechanical systems, led to an impressive 94 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. The revitalization of the Ken Soble Tower created 146 new affordable, comfortable, and climate resilient living units for seniors.

The project was also recognized with the EIFS Council of Canada (ECC) Architectural Design Award as Grand Prize Winner.
