              The facility is designed to accommodate flexible, adaptable, functional and efficient office environments while providing access to natural daylight, safety and comfort. Two staggered wings provide added flexibility which include a raised floor system for all electrical and data distribution. The building provides several staff amenities which include secure bicycle storage, change rooms, showers, training centre, cafeteria, staff lounge, courtyard and roof terrace.

              The redevelopment of the TD Centre will add 100,000 square feet of new Class A commercial space in downtown Halifax. It is registered LEED Gold, and at 200,000 square feet will use the same amount of energy as the original 100,000 square feet. Lydon Lynch provided leadership through the new HRM by Design approval process, receiving unanimous approval from both the Heritage Advisory and Design Review Committees. Construction will be complete in 2014.

              Located in downtown Halifax, this LEED Gold Core & Shell building adds 100,000 square feet of Class A office space to an existing office tower while incorporating a heritage façade. It further replaces all mechanical and electrical systems along with a new building envelope. The sustainable features include a green roof, photovoltaic panels, bicycle storage and changing facilities. The new mechanical systems will reduce energy costs by 49%, resulting in no net increase in energy costs for a building that will double in size.

              Located atop of a natural promontory, this 16 acre site will ultimately contain 400,000 square feet of commercial space. The first building provides 60,000 square feet of LEED Gold office space with a single level of underground parking and establishes the campus relationship of building and landscape. The building’s expression includes a dramatic roof canopy that portrays a distinct image beyond the campus boundary. Against the courtyard, the building inverts its massing, setting back the lower levels to create a colonnade that responds to the pedestrian scale of a campus setting.

              This 60,000 square feet office building is designed to LEED Gold Core & Shell. It utilizes several sustainable features including rainwater harvesting, energy efficient HVAC systems, solar hot water radiant panels, bicycle storage, changing facilities, electric car charging stations and reflective roof. The main features of the main lobby include reclaimed wood used for wall cladding and bench seating made from single pieces of trees.

              Designed to LEED Platinum, this mixed-use project will redevelop a full city block in downtown Halifax while incorporating five heritage buildings. The development consists of two towers – one for office and the other to include a boutique hotel and condominiums. The design incorporates a folding wall and roof that unifies the expression for the development. A central public atrium, plazas, street level retail and landscape features will create an engaging urban experience.

              The redevelopment of an entire city block in downtown Halifax will create over 500,000 square feet of mixed-use development. Designed to LEED Platinum Core & Shell, it will utilize many features to reduce its environmental footprint, including solar hot water roof panels, geothermal, photovoltaics, rainwater harvesting, raised access flooring in the office tower, hybrid heat pumps in the hotel and condos and and heat reclamation from sewage waste.

              The Waterside Centre is a high profile 86,000 square foot Class A office and commercial building adjacent to Historic Properties in downtown Halifax. Designed to incorporate the facades of five registered historic buildings on the property, Waterside Centre will provide an exemplary interior working environment within a new modern building. It is a registered LEED Project designed to achieve Gold Certification and will result in 50% reduction in energy utilization.

              The design for this boutique office building provides an innovative solution to a complex situation, which is to create an infill building located between two distinctly different heritage properties. While the proposed design respectfully ‘tips its hat’ to both buildings, it creates its own identity which is modern and distinctive.
