Mohawk College’s Joyce Centre named Engineering Project of the Year

March 23, 2018

The Hamilton-Halton Projects of the Year Awards Gala is one of the most anticipated events of its kind for the engineering profession in Southern Ontario. Local engineering talent, developers and members of the community at large come together to celebrate the engineering profession and the vital role engineers play in improving the safety, prosperity and standard of living in the Hamilton-Halton region.

This year, the Hamilton-Halton Engineering Week Committee selected the Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation project as the 2018 Engineering Project of the Year in the Sustainability Engineering Category.

Mohawk College’s Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation project is a new 96,000 sq.ft. Net-Zero building on Mohawk College’s Fennell Campus in Hamilton, ON. The building features leading edge technologies including an innovative curtain wall, solar panels generating 721,000 kWh/year AC, a 342,000 litre rainwater harvesting system, sensor-controlled LED lighting, and a green roof.

Walters provided Design Assist to reduce costs, as well as fast track construction, fabrication, erection and the delivery of 931 tons for the main building and 186 tons of Solar panel support steel, for a total of 1117T.

Congratulations to our client EllisDon, our project partner McCallumSather and B+H, and of course, the entire team at Mohawk College!
