Three HIDI projects have been selected as contenders for this year’s Mississauga Urban Design Awards “People’s Choice Award.” The projects include the University of Toronto Mississauga Innovation Complex, the University of Toronto Mississauga Deerfield Hall, and Square One Shopping Centre North Expansion / Simon’s.
The event, which will be held this year on September 22, is hosted every two years and recognizes excellence in urban design. More specifically, the awards celebrate how Mississauga buildings and their surroundings are both visually and functionally integrated into their neighbourhoods and how they inspire community members to contribute to the City.
HIDI provided mechanical, electrical, communications and security design for the LEED Silver certified UTM Innovation Complex. HRCx, HIDI’s dedicated Commissioning division, provided LEED Commissioning services for the UTM Deerfield Hall which also received a LEED Silver certification. The Square One Shopping Centre North Expansion, which was completed in 2015, benefited from HIDI’s mechanical and electrical engineering expertise.
