This project involved the significant redevelopment of an existing 16,000 sq. ft., two-storey commercial office into a 90-bed homeless shelter as part of the City of Toronto’s ongoing strategy to create permanent shelter beds.

Work involved a total building interior renovation and space layout, commercial kitchen, complete overcladding and re-roofing, seismic upgrades and structural reinforcing, a new elevator shaft, upgraded ventilation, heat recovery, plumbing, power, and lightings systems, and new outdoor amenity space and asphalt paved parking lot.

The project achieved Tier 2 of the City of Toronto Green Standard (version 3) for indoor air quality and energy and thermal performance.

RJC was the Contract Administrator and Prime Consultant for 11 different disciplines and provided technical design services for the structural, civil, building envelope, and roofing components of the project.

Our team also included architectural, mechanical, electrical, security design, IPAC design, kitchen design, building and fire code, and cost estimating.
