Corus Quay - A LEED Waterfront Development 

Theme: Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA) Promotion Night

Corus Quay - Waterfront - Exterior

ASHRAE Toronto Chapter's March dinner meeting will be held at the new corporate headquarters for Corus Entertainment located at the water’s edge in East Bayfront. Corus Quay is a 500,000 square foot office and broadcast centre that has allowed the company to consolidate its Toronto based operations from two distinct locations, including 24 television services and three Toronto radio stations into one facility. Corus Quay is a hub of activity with round-the-clock broadcasting and space for public performances.

Corus Quay is owned and was developed by Toronto Port Lands Company, formerly known as the City of Toronto Economic Development Corporation (TEDCO), Corus Quay is the anchor project in the revitalization of East Bayfront, bringing life, energy and business opportunities to Toronto's waterfront neighbourhood.

Corus Quay - Interior

Corus Quay is targeting LEED® Gold certification, and features a number of sustainable green building and development practices that were adhered to throughout the construction of this project, including:

  • Energy efficient lighting, including the use of daylight harvesting to reduce power consumption by automatically dimming lights when natural sunlight can be used
  • Filtering the air in the central atrium through a living, five-storey high bio-wall. This stunning green wall uses plants to naturally clean the air and reduce energy consumption
  • Use of local and recycled materials
  • Corus Quay has a rooftop cistern that collects rainwater that drastically reduces water consumption
  • Installed environmentally friendly printers that use solid ink which creates 80% less packaging waste (all the packaging is recycled and recyclable), uses 50% less power when printing and reduces greenhouse gas emissions
  • Corus Quay features green rooftops to create usable outdoor space for Corus employees but also to reduce heat-island effect
  • Twenty percent of all materials in the project came from within 800 km and the entire building is made up of a custom THERMO 3 Curtain Wall System which works to reflect light and drive down energy consumption
  • Over 75% of construction waste was diverted away from landfill during the construction of Corus Quay

Guest Speakers

Lyle Scott

Lyle Scott, P.Eng, LEED AP BD+C


Sustainability should no longer be viewed as a separate discipline that is brought in only when a project is already at an advanced stage. For sustainability to be most effective, it should be integrated into every aspect and at every stage of a project. With a background that includes more than 15 years in sustainable design and development as well as facility management and consulting, Lyle has gained a broad perspective on the best sustainability strategies.
Lyle has played a key role in a wide range of sustainable design projects. Projects include: Seneca College – Knowledge Infrastructure Facility, Target LEED® Gold, Toronto, ON; Calgary International Airport – International Facilities Building, LEED® Registered, Target Gold Certification, Calgary, AB; Minto Roehampton, First Highrise Multi-Residential Building to Achieve CaGBC LEED® Gold Certification, Toronto, ON; Edmonton Clinic, LEED® Registered, Target Silver, Edmonton, AB; 180 Kent Street – Minto Office Building LEED® Candidate, Targeting Gold Certification, Ottawa, ON; Minto Midtown, Largest Mixed-Use Building to Achieve CaGBC LEED® – NC Gold Certification, Toronto, ON.

Dinner Meeting

As usual, ASHRAE Toronto will be hosting its March 2012 Dinner Meeting, which will include a traditional three course meal, catered directly into the Corus Quay building. Due to the additional costs of catering and coordination for this venue, the Dinner Meeting rates have been slightly increased for members and guests. Reception will be held at 5:30 PM and the Dinner Meeting will start at 6:30 PM. Guest speaker presentations will be held towards the end of dinner.
Thank you for your continued support of ASHRAE Toronto and we look forward to seeing at our March 2012 Technical Tour & Dinner Meeting event!
