York University Schulich expansion drives for sustainability
from Daily Commercial News
Toronto's York University is undertaking an expansion at its Schulich School of Business that has been designed to be one of the most environmentally sustainable academic buildings in Canada. The new 67,000-square-foot building incorporates thermally active building systems, maximizing opportunities for natural ventilation, daylighting and solar energy harvest while minimizing unwanted solar heat gain. A tall solar chimney will provide free cooling and ventilation in spring and fall as well as passive solar pre-heating of mechanical air ventilation in winter.
