              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.

              The new Lydon Lynch offices were designed to meet the most stringent of environmental standards while providing the most productive work environment for our own design team. Overlooking beautiful Halifax Harbour, our naturally day lit, passively ventilated office is by protected by a green roof to block summer overheating, substantially reducing the need for air conditioning. Transparency throughout the design encourages collaboration, while the non-toxic, fresh air environment increases wellness, clear thinking and innovative ideas. The office was designed to LEED® Platinum standards. Heating is provided by a combination of geothermal and solar energy. All roof-water is captured and re-used in grey water systems.

              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.

              The law offices for McInnes Cooper involved 90,000 sq. ft. of renovated office space for 275 employees over 6 floors of Purdy’s Wharf, Tower II. The goal of creating a high quality, polished and unique new look for the law firm has resulted in facilities that exhibit a clean and elegant modern aesthetic. The centerpiece, a new two storey atrium with floor to ceiling views of Halifax Harbour, features careful detailing of natural stone, high gloss lacquer walls, floor to ceiling glass partitions and stainless steel accents. Access to natural daylight and state of the art technology are seamlessly integrated into the design.

              The offices for Jain & Co. reflect their position as a boutique accounting firm within Halifax. The entrance and reception area is designed as a modern and elegant focal point that provides separation between client and staff areas. The reception area incorporates coloured, polished concrete floors that extend into the meeting rooms which are surrounded by frameless glass walls. Each meeting room incorporates large colourful ceiling features and custom onyx tables which are digitally integrated with wall mounted display screens. The office areas include a staff lounge, private offices and administrative support spaces.

              The new facility serves all the RCMP’s operations throughout Nova Scotia and incorporates a complex program of administrative and technical functions including training classrooms, holding cells, exercise facilities, cafeteria, officer’s messes and investigation units. The facility accommodates over 500 personnel with strategies for future expansion. The facility is designed to provide an appropriate architectural image for the RCMP which respects their Canadian heritage and acknowledges them as one of the world’s most innovative police forces. The project is registered as LEED gold.

              This 250,000 square foot facility consolidates all RCMP operations into one state-of-the-art facility. The building is LEED Gold and incorporates many sustainable features such as rainwater harvesting, daylight harvesting, maximize recycling of construction waste, use of recycled materials, high efficiency mechanical systems and building envelope performance and durability.
