Otay-Tijuana Cross Border Xpress

How do you design an airport that has no aircraft attached and straddles the US-Mexican border? You think outside the box. We designed a one-of-a-kind crossing that uses a skybridge to bring passengers efficiently across the border, meets USCBP facility design guidelines, and significantly reduces the carbon intensity of one of the busiest border crossing points between the US and Mexico.

Forensic Sciences & Coroner's Complex

When evidence of failing infrastructure emerged at the Centre of Forensic Sciences and the Office of the Chief Coroner, the Province of Ontario responded. The result: a new Forensic Services and Coroner’s Complex in Toronto. Sustainable design strategies support staff well-being but also results in a durable, cost and operationally efficient building, the first LEED-Gold Certified forensics laboratory in Canada.

Evolv1

Evolv1 demonstrates that a high-performance building can be a market-driven, cost-effective building. We used a highly-integrated design process where both passive and active systems optimize value received against cost. The solution? A high-performance building envelope with triple glazing, a solar wall for preheated ventilation, a geo-exchange / VRF HVAC system, and a green wall. But even more important—the building has the capability to become net positive. Read More

George W. Bush Presidential Center

Preserving the official documents and artifacts of the George W. Bush presidency takes energy. (Just ask the 135 full-time staff who’ve taken on the job.) Part of that energy is used by the museum where the items are stored. Running its three programs—the Presidential Archives, Presidential Museum, and Policy Institute—and welcoming 250,000 visitors annually, means high energy usage. Our team found ways to help the Center save some energy. Read More
