Ken Soble Tower Retrofit

Graeme Stewart – OAA MRAIC CIP RPP CAHP

Centre for Urban Growth and Renewal | ERA Architects

 

With ERA Architects as lead designer, CityHousing Hamilton Corporation (CHHC) is embarking on a ground-breaking project to rehabilitate an aging 17-storey apartment tower using the ultra-low energy Passive House standard. The Ken Soble Tower transformation will convert this asset, built in 1967, into state-of-the-art housing. The first of its kind in North America, this project will bring together innovations in ultra-low energy retrofit, financing, and community benefit. A significant aspect of achieving Passive House relates to high performance envelop. Since large-scale EnerPHit projects are still uncommon in the Ontario market, this session will outline learnings, challenges and recommendations to aid building owners, design teams and constructors in engaging in EnerPHit projects in Ontario.
