Future Ready Whole Building Retrofits: Façade and Core
Buildings age, energy efficiency and carbon standards become more stringent, and our climate changes. Within this context, owners are looking for solutions that address both the skin and core of their buildings. Architects and consultants must provide holistic solutions that are beautiful, perform efficiently, and help buildings respond to a changing climate. Facade retrofits (re-cladding or over-cladding) often proceed in response to deteriorating cladding elements, inefficient envelopes (thermal, moisture, etc.), aged materials and/or a desire for a new aesthetic. These types of large-scale projects present unique opportunities to incorporate core (HVAC & electrical) upgrades that benefit from a renewed enclosure and delivery a more energy efficient, comfortable building with a lower carbon profile.
This session will use case studies to analyze the renewal ‘decision arc’. We will highlight factors leading to and opportunities arising from large scale building renewal, including various retrofit strategies and their impact on energy and carbon reductions. This session will include information on the steps and processes used to move building renewal from an idea to implementation and will provide useful information to designers exploring opportunities in the building renewal market.
Scott Armstrong & Hannah Thevapalan

Scott Armstrong

Scott is passionate about buildings: their design and construction, ongoing performance, deterioration and failure, and, ultimately, their renewal. Scott has over 20 years’ experience in high performance buildings, building enclosures, façades, existing building repair and renewal, roofing and green roofs, and integrated design. A LEED Accredited Professional, past Secretary and Board member of the CaGBC Greater Toronto Chapter, a Building Science Specialist of Ontario (BSSO), and Certified Engineering Technologist (CET), Scott successfully bridges the traditional gap between Architectural and Engineering disciplines.


Hannah Thevapalan

Hannah has over 10 years of experience in building science consulting in North America,  with exposure to a variety of commercial, institutional and residential projects. She is passionate about highly detail-oriented projects and enjoys being on site working with both design and construction teams. Her educational background in both architecture and engineering provides her with a unique combination of tools to approach building restoration, renewal and new construction. Her experience in New York City and Toronto include the World Trade Centre Memorial, Toronto College Park restoration and 120 & 130 Adelaide St. W. (Re-Cladding).
