“Creatively integrated sustainable features supporting education and fostering change.”

Bruce’s Mill Sustainability Education Centre was conceived through a unique collaboration between the York Region and The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.

The Centre’s mandate is to foster change in human behaviour through interactive learning. Sustainable features are creatively integrated into the proposed structure with the intent of demonstrating the principles of sustainability to the public in an engaging manner. Students would gain first-hand experience with sustainable ecological models, such as water harvesting, as it would be seamlessly integrated into their learning environment.

Classrooms are designed with outdoor components that allow the educational environment to easily shift outside of the typical classroom space into a natural setting. The parkland site plays a fundamental role in the sustainable design strategies for storm water, final “polishing” stages for the biofilter, waste water treatment system, geothermal field and pre-heat / cool off ventilation air via earth-tubes. It is the intention of the client to pursue LEED® Platinum certification.
