Government of Canada – Jean Canfield Building

Client: Public Works & Government Services Canada
Program: /
Size: 188,400 sf
Cost: $ 40M

In joint venture with HOK, the Jean Canfield Building was designed as a sustainable precedent for Canadian federal buildings of the 21st century. Integrating sustainability, supportive workspaces, and connectivity was the key driver of project’s design. This goal was achieved through a multi-disciplinary design approach making use of local resources, passive systems, and state-of-the-art “green” technologies. The design features a central atrium for passive ventilation and cooling, a concrete structure for radiant heating/cooling, a raised floor for localized climate control, and daylighting to all work areas. The Jean Canfield Building was the first maritime building to achieve LEED Gold Certification.
