SBI Update

2018 was a defining and inspiring year for mcCallumSather. Two projects of note throughout the year include the completion and occupancy of The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation (with B+H) at Mohawk College, the largest Net Zero building in Canada, located right here in Hamilton. Plus, we bid farewell to our office on Catharine St N and became anchor tenants at the iconic Westinghouse HQ situated at 286 Sanford Ave N.

2018 was a defining and inspiring year for mcCallumSather. Two projects of note throughout the year include the completion and occupancy of The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation (with B+H) at Mohawk College, the largest Net Zero building in Canada, located right here in Hamilton. Plus, we bid farewell to our office on Catharine St N and became anchor tenants at the iconic Westinghouse HQ situated at 286 Sandford Ave N.

Originally built in 1917, the Westinghouse Building is a landmark in Hamilton’s east end – epitomizing the former strength of Hamilton’s industrial age. Now reimagined, our 10,000ft2 new work space is a showcase in sustainable design within a heritage context and a real-world example of how a modern, collaborative work space can function.

Over a more traditional office environment, the design has resulted in a projected energy saving of 54%. We are targeting a LEED Platinum certification for commercial interiors, making it one of the most sustainable offices in Hamilton. There are no assigned offices or desks. All staff use individual laptops to hot-desk within the facility – which has resulted in an 80% reduction in paper usage.

As mcCallumSather continues to push innovative and intelligent design, we can direct clients and industry partners to our very own home base to demonstrate what can be achieved in adaptive reuse of heritage buildings and high performance, sustainable design – all within the constraints of a 100-year-old building.
