Smylie & Crow Associates have provided the mechanical and electrical building services design for the Dr. David Suzuki Public School. Our involvement in this project has been a rewarding experience. It has provided us an opportunity to showcase numerous established and advancing technologies in the field of energy efficient design.

The design of these building systems required extensive coordination between our office, the School Board, the Architect, the structural engineer and the LEED consultant. Consultation with the local building officials and local utilities was also key in ensuring some of the newer technologies could be implemented in compliance with established Codes.

It is our hope that, through the demonstrated use and performance of the systems in this building, some of these energy efficient technologies will gain wider acceptance in future projects. We appreciate the leadership shown by the Greater Essex County District School Board in developing this school as a demonstration site for energy efficient technology.
