The HIDI Group was the mechanical consultant for WaterPark Place III (WPP III), a landmark high-rise office tower located near Toronto’s Harbourfront. RBC is the anchor tenant of this 1.2 million ft² development. Phase III, which was completed in 2014, has achieved LEED Platinum certification – a pioneer in Toronto’s commercial landscape.
The project’s critical success factors included the development of a novel ventilation air system to support the LEED Platinum requirements, as well as interfacing with a new PATH bridge over Toronto’s Gardiner expressway and the two existing phases of WaterPark Place. WPP III is one of the only buildings in the city that offers the ability to provide on-demand ventilation per work area.
HIDI previously provided electrical engineering services for the first two phases of the project. We also acted as mechanical engineers for the prime tenant, RBC, and provided mechanical, electrical, lighting and commissioning services for a second major tenant, Cisco.
