The Deep-Performance Dwelling: Canada's entry in the 2018 Solar Decathlon China competition
Michael Jemtrud & Philippe St-Jean, McGill University
McGill and Concordia Universities have teamed up to form TeamMTL, Canada's sole entry into the 2018 Solar Decathlon China competition to be held in Dezhou, Shandong province July 11-August 19.  Based on the classic Montreal row house typology, the "Deep-Performance Dwelling" (DPD) is an affordable, smart-grid capable, factory-built (panelized) design for the urban context that is constructed to Passive House standards.  The DPD is TeamMTL's answer to pressing global needs for flexible, affordable, and sustainable urban housing. 'Deep-Performance' implies a socially, culturally, and technologically advanced architecture that embodies qualitative and quantitative notions of performance in addressing energy efficiency, comfort, wellbeing, affordability, environmental sustainability and ecological awareness.

University of Toronto Scarborough's 750-bed PH Student Residence

With the new Canadian net-carbon mandates and rising energy costs, more building owners are interested in High Performance Buildings. Toronto Green Standard has already acknowledged PH as a means to meeting Net-Carbon Targets. We created a Project Output Specification for an exemplar PH Student Residence using a P3 Procurement Model. This exemplar of a large-scale PH Student Residence complete with a commercial kitchen (North-American Style Food Court) is currently the largest of its kind in North America. The tested PH exemplar provides the university with a specified minimum design standard, that any chosen design-build team can use to meet the PH design and construction requirements.
