Faculty and Staff Housing – Evolve

Evolve has 110 rental suites for faculty and staff. These are high-performance homes situated on the corner of Wesbrook Mall and Gray Avenue. Targeting Passive House certification, these homes minimise energy usage with triple-glazed windows, movable sun shades, heating recovery ventilation continuously providing fresh filtered air to create a healthy breathing and living environment.

Evolve provides a mixture of studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, 3-bedroom and 4-bedroom homes. There is an indoor common lounge area, a guest suite available for booking and a courtyard with communal barbeques and a play area which will be shared with the adjacent building, Echo.

NRCAN awarded this project a research grant that will compare energy usage between this passive house certified project and a non-passive house building, Mundell House.
