The new building is a 1-storey, 1,115 m2 facility that includes a gathering hall, classrooms, meeting rooms, offices, a Judaic library, and a Synagogue.
The building exceeded SB-10 OBC energy requirements with features such as LED high efficiency lighting, a gas-fired high efficiency condensing domestic water heater, energy recovery exhaust supply air ventilation and a high efficiency wall to window ratio envelope.
Special consideration to noise impact on local residential properties adjacent to the site was critical. Using acoustic analysis, this was addressed through both the equipment selections and the layout.
