Earlier this year, [SABMag] announced the winners of its 12th Annual Canadian Green Building Awards. The 2019 program’s theme involved developing procedures regarding life cycle deliberations. While the full list of winners is available here, one project particularly worthy of a closer look is the Wellington Building Rehabilitation project, which was celebrated in the “Existing Building Upgrade Award” category. Located in Ottawa, the Wellington Building Rehabilitation by NORR Architects & Engineers Ltd., has already won a Design Excellence Award from the OAA. It showcases 90 years of valuable historical life and limitless aesthetic aspects. The Wellington Building rehabilitation project uses different technologies such as its connection to the district energy plant, solar panels for domestic water pre-heating, heat recovery units and a rainwater cistern. The functional transformation in this project includes revitalizing and upgrading the internal structural skeleton, heritage restoration and new multi-storey spaces. The Wellington building is a historic Beaux-Arts masterpiece that sits into its context properly. Therefore, the upgrade process moulded according to the logic of heritage transformation for the future generations’ conversion of abstract ideas into real status. For more, click here.
