This Government of Ontario project entailed the replacement of existing 1500kva and 750kva-rated dry-type transformers and air-insulated high voltage switchgear with a dual-voltage output liquid-filled transformer and SF6 gas-insulated high voltage switchgear serving two separate buildings. This is the first installation of this type of equipment allowed in a commercial application for the downtown Toronto Hydro core.
The existing single storey industrial building on this site was transformed into a modern 2-storey 50,000sf office building complete with power service upgrade, data centre, and dual emergency diesel generator and UPS systems capable of being switched over to provide redundant operation. A lightning protection system was also installed to provide added protection for the building against direct lightning strikes.
Axiom Engineering was engaged to execute the interior and exterior lighting design for this second expansion to the historic Goodes Hall building to provide a distinctive lighting design that complements the existing lighting in the remainder of the building that was replaced during the last renovation. This was a LEED Certified installation.
This project involved salvaging the old Eglinton Grand theatre and transforming it into an multi-purpose entertainment venue. Filled with custom lighting and art deco accents, the existing neon cove lighting was salvaged and was made operational. A complete power, lighting, and life safety upgrade was required for this building.
