#1 Community Connection and Innovation

Monday, June 2 (MORNING Half Day Tour 8:30 AM - 12 NOON)

#2 The Future of Healthcare and Education Facilities

Monday, June 2 (MORNING half day tour 8:30 AM - 12 NOON)

Bridgepoint Hospital, now the largest facility of its kind in Canada, has built a brand new 680,000 sq ft LEED certified building which will house all of its patient care operations.  Administrative offices for the hospital are now located in the repurposed, restored and historic Don Jail building onsite.

From here the tour will head to the new Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (EFTO) headquarters which is targeting LEED Platinum.  EFTO’s ambition is to be the greenest and most energy efficient commercial office building in the City of Toronto and a model for others in the education sector to follow.



#3 Discovering Toronto’s Waterfront and CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Athletes' Village

Monday, June 2 (AFTERNOON Half Day Tour  1 PM - 4:30 PM)

Toronto’s waterfront is undergoing a massive revitalization effort, with Waterfront Toronto leading the redevelopment of 800 hectares of underutilized land.  As public advocate and steward responsible for waterfront revitalization, Waterfront Toronto is working with residents, governments, and businesses to build spectacular public spaces and beautifully designed and sustainable, mixed-use communities.
This tour will showcase the collective efforts to date. Beginning in the East Bayfront Precinct, attendees will enjoy a tour of Sherbourne Common (winner of the CaGBC-GTC Innovation in LEED 2013 New Construction Award), Corus Quay, George Brown College’s Waterfront Campus and Sugar Beach. Highlights include insight into the stormwater management system built into the Sherbourne Common pavilion, which treats stormwater and water drawn from Lake Ontario, and a tour of the LEED Gold certified George Brown College campus.
The tour will then continue to the West Don Lands, site of Corktown Common, Underpass Park, River City, Toronto Community Housing Corporation’s (TCHC) newest buildings and the CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Athletes’ Village (under construction). Attendees will enjoy the beautiful views of Toronto’s skyline from the top of Corktown Common and will learn about the Flood Protection Landform on which the park is built – a novel engineering feature that provides flood protection to 210 hectares of downtown Toronto, including the financial district.
Ending at Underpass Park after a stroll by the new TCHC buildings and River City, attendees will get a true sense of the lively and sustainable neighbourhoods being created along Toronto’s new blue edge.



#4 Exploring Downtown Toronto’s Best of LEED

This walking tour will kick off at the inspiring, newly constructed 750,000 sq ft LEED Gold targeted SickKids Hospital (Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning).  The tour will then continue to City Hall’s massive green roof, a public garden that breathes new life into a significant part of the square that has been off limits to the public for many years.

The group will then explore the financial district including the impressive LEED Gold and Platinum certified Cadillac Fairview TD Centre (winner of the CaGBC-GTC Innovation in LEED 2013 EB:O&M  Award) and the PwC Tower (targeting LEED Gold), as well as other large downtown corporate offices that have demonstrated impressive energy and water performance metrics as well as high levels of occupant satisfaction.



#5 Home is where the Heart is

Monday, June 2 (AFTERNOON Half Day Tour 1 PM - 4:30 PM)

Many of Canada’s existing houses do not meet today’s building code standards for energy efficiency. As utility rates continue to rise, there is a greater focus on sustainable renovations and remodeling of existing homes to significantly reduce GHG emissions. This tour focuses on innovative designers, builders and developers who have demonstrated their commitment to sustainability through renovation and new construction (3 homes/townhouses).
