TDHSC坐落在倾斜的地面上,从校外的环形公路逐渐升高至建筑所在地,同时也是未来规划的Academic Quad(学校庭院)入口处的标志性建筑。TDHSC各个楼层面积大小的交替让人联想到场地西侧与南侧的自然景观,而建筑的北立面对齐设计,朝向Academic Quad展现了一个正式的立面外观。褶皱不锈钢立面既能捕捉自然光线,也能反射柔和的人造光线,确保其地标建筑的地位。



Significant sustainable design features are as follows:

TDHSC将拥有直接通往公共交通线路的路径。将来会拆除建筑场地北部现有的地面停车场,取而代之的是拟建中的Academic Quad。

The Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex at the University of Toronto Mississauga accommodates teaching and research facilities for the new medicalschool to be based at the Mississauga campus. The campus is known for theintimate relationship it has with its beautiful natural setting and its forward-thinking design.

The functional programming of TDHSC supports three primary user groups: the newMississauga Academy of Medicine, the Department of Biomedical Communicationsand the Department of Anthropology and Forensics. The program at TDHSC includesvideo conference-ready lecture theatres, classrooms, seminar rooms, faculty andadministrative offices, and instructional and research laboratories.

Each of the three user groups has very distinct space, adjacency and identityrequirements. A series of stacked ‘boxes,’ where each ‘box’ shrinks or enlargesfrom floor to floor to best facilitate desired program adjacency requirementswhile maximizing views and access to daylight. The outdoor spaces createdbetween the stacked ‘boxes’ accommodate accessible terraces overlookinggardens of indigenous planting. The teaching, office spaces and laboratoriesfloat in greenery.

TDHSC is situated on sloped terrain rising up from the outer campus Ring Road,and will landmark the entrance to a future proposed Academic Quad. The shiftingfloor plates of TDHSC accentuate the soft landscape to the east south and westwhile the building’s north face, in its vertical uniformity, will provide a formal façadeto the Academic Quad. The faceted stainless steel façades capture both naturaland ambient artificial light ensuring its landmark presence is articulated 24/7.

The configuration of the stainless steel panels is determined by an arithmeticsequence of angles 15-30-60-90 that imposes both a varied appearance to thecladding that acknowledges the Campus’ admired natural setting and strategicallyminimizes solar gain at the glazed areas. The reflective properties of the stainlesssteel panels and their configuration also has a bioclimatic benefit; in the summersolar heat is deflected from the building envelope and in the winter the warm airtrapped within the panels provides an insulating blanket of tempered air aroundthe building envelope.

In keeping with the University of Toronto’s mandate for sustainable building, theHealth Sciences Complex has been designed for LEED Gold certification.

Significant sustainable design features are as follows:

The TDHSC will be provided with direct access to public transit. In the future the existing surface parking on the north portion of the construction site will be eliminated and replaced by the proposed Academic Quad.

The TDHSC is serviced by a central district energy plant eliminating the requirement for independent boilers, chillers and cooling towers. The district energy source reduces both the physical and carbon footprint of the building and the noise levels associated with exterior cooling tower on a site designated as the campus’ principal public realm.

The University of Toronto Mississauga Campus is situated within the Credit River watershed. The University has demonstrated a commitment to effectively managing storm water run-off to the Credit River through a series of retention ponds. The TDHSC’s storm water management design will further minimize the building’s impact on the existing storm water infrastructure by the employment of vegetative roofs to control storm water run-off and storm water cisterns to utilize gray water for all washrooms.

The TDHSC will be constructed of building materials where the post-consumer and post-industrial recycled content exceeds 15%. The project will also divert more than 75% of its construction waste from landfill sites to recycling facilities.

The TDHSC’s exterior envelope is designed as a dual skin system: an insulated and water tight primary skin and an independent second outer skin to reduce heat gain utilizing stainless steel panels to reflect heat and exterior louvers to shade glazed areas.

The TDHSC’s individual floor plates are proportioned to ensure all permanently occupied offices are provided with operable windows for natural ventilation. All lecture theatres, classrooms, labs, seminar rooms and public corridors have access to direct or borrowed natural light.

All occupied spaces will be provided with have individual lighting occupancy sensors and controls.

All occupied spaces will be provided with individual heating and cooling controls.

The TDHSC is equipped to reclaim heat from all mechanical exhaust air systems including lab exhaust air.
