Green Build: Walters Group’s Impactful Contributions at Mohawk College’s The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation

Mohawk College’s – The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation is a pioneering achievement in Canada, marking the first-ever recipient of the Zero Carbon Building Certification for design and performance. The Canada Green Building Council awarded this certification, and the building has maintained its performance standards and certification ever since. The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation is Canada’s largest and Hamilton’s first Net Zero building.

Walters Group played an integral role in this landmark project, contributing crucial design-assist engineering, connection design, detailing, fabrication, and erection services for 1,117 Tons of structural steel. This encompassed the delivery of 931 tons for the main building and an additional 186 tons of solar panel support steel.

Partnering with Ellis Don, McCallum Sather Architects, B+H Architects, and Vanderwesten Rutherford Mantecon, the collaborative effort produced a facility equipped with an array of green systems. These include a variable refrigerant flow heat pump system, high-efficiency plumbing fixtures, a high-performance building envelope for optimal heating and cooling, and ample natural lighting. Complementing these features are geothermal wells, stormwater harvesting, and a sensor-controlled LED lighting system, all contributing to the building’s net-zero aspirations.

At Walters Group we are committed to supporting our partners in building projects that promote a sustainable future. As a part of our sustainability strategy, we provide highly efficient structural steel solutions, aiding in the development of infrastructure conducive to decarbonization and the attainment of environmental objectives.
