McCauley Lodge is an assisted living home providing life skills training for independent living. There are 30 bedroom suites with combined living and dining rooms on each floor. A central kitchen provides 3 meals a day for the residents.

 

Working closely with our client to understand the needs of the individuals using the facility, we developed a new operational model. The design mirrors LEED and BOMA Best, and will be used as a prototype for future facilities on small in-fill sites.

 

The building uses a high efficiency condensing boiler with radiant panel heating and high-end environmental controls.  An air-tight building envelope, triple glazing, LED lighting with occupancy sensors, North/South building orientation for solar gains and operable windows for passive cooling, reduces mechanical systems and lighting demand

 

Energy performance of the building was 27% better than originally simulated and is 25% below the NRCAN average energy consumption for multi-unit buildings.

 

McCauley Lodge received 2 awards at the 2015 Commercial Building Awards.  Read more about the awards here.
