The Joyce Centre for Partnership and Innovation (JCPI) at Mohawk College is a fast-tracked, net zero carbon building. The facility is the second project in Canada to earn a Zero Carbon Building – Design certification through the CaGBC’s cutting-edge Zero Carbon Building Program. Designed as a net-zero footprint facility including state-of-the-art labs, workshops, lecture theatres, industry training centres and showcase an iconic canopy roof with forked columns.
Green elements of the project include a variable refrigerant flow heat pumps system, high efficiency plumbing fixtures, as well as a high-performance building envelope to maximize heating, cooling and natural light. Geothermal wells, stormwater harvesting and a sensor-controlled LED lighting system throughout the building will enable the project to meet its net-zero goals.
