KEY CONSIDERATIONS

Challenge One

Mirvish has 30+ team members, mostly in Toronto. The executive architect was located in Vancouver, and our team was located in Calgary.

Solution One

Despite the time zone differences, we collaborated through various electronic means, working early and late to support the team.

Challenge Two

The project is a zero-lot line site in the middle of Little Korea, making it challenging for the GC to meet prerequisite erosion control measures.

Solution Two

Our team devised alternate strategies to ensure the GC can continue to work while maintaining site compliance. We hosted calls with both USGBC and CaGBC to ensure aspects of each LEED system were met in the Canadian context.
