The building is a single storey 1,100 m2 synagogue facility with gathering hall, administration, server kitchen and classrooms. The building will exceed SB-10 OBC energy requirements with features such as LED high efficiency lighting, gas-fired high efficiency condensing domestic water heater, energy recovery exhaust supply air ventilation and high efficiency wall to window ratio envelope.
Special consideration to noise impact to local residential properties adjacent to the site was critical. Using acoustic analysis this was designed into the equipment selections and layout.
