Richard Ivey Building / Hariri Pontarini Architects

From the architect. A truly great school of business has three dimensions: it must attract, it must inspire, and it must build a rich sense of community. Therefore, when Hariri Pontarini Architects (HPA) was chosen—from an international competition— to design the new Richard Ivey Building for the Ivey Business School at Western University, the goal was to create an environment that would enable the school to be competitive on the global stage while also celebrating the university’s Gothic architecture and heritage, and adding a signature building to the City of London.

Save this picture!

Conceptual Approach:
Conceptualized as a geode, the building uses stone to expresses a strong exterior gravitas that relates to the form and materiality that Western campus is known for, while the verdant central quadrangle, full of vibrancy and warmth is preserved for the inner experience of the school.

Save this picture!

Design Approach:
HPA approached the design from the inside out, capturing what is meaningful and singular about the Ivey Business School to build community and reflect its unique team-based learning approach. The three storey structure uses a central quadrangle as the primary organizing element, with a full-height Great Hall anchoring the main circulation. The distribution of twenty case-study classrooms and adjacent breakout rooms around this central quadrangle encourages interaction and collaboration both in- and-out of the classroom, and provides a powerful architectural armature for the Ivey Program and an organizing device for the Ivey community.

Save this picture!

A gradation from the active to the contemplative informs the distribution of additional program elements; the eastern wing contains the main entrance, amphitheatre, and the Great Hall. Moving through the building westward, spaces become increasingly quiet as one approaches the Library.

Save this picture!

Ground Floor Plan

The building’s materials—stone, concrete, glass, copper, steel, walnut, and Douglas fir—were selected for their elemental and timeless qualities.

Save this picture!

A Sense of Place:
The siting of Ivey at the active corner of Western Road and Brescia Road, an important intersection, creates an iconic signature building with views back to the main campus roundabout, and out into the landscaped grounds to the north. Setting the stage for the expansion of the university between the core of the main campus and the outlying colleges. Our design, based on the time-honoured archetype of designing around a quadrangle created a building that is economical, optimizes natural light and minimizes its footprint.

Save this picture!

Functional connections with the city and university are improved by clarifying parking and access: student/professor parking via a clear path from the west to the main entry, and visitor parking from the east service road, which is also the means of discreetly servicing the building. A bicycle parking area near the front entrance, and a path leading directly from the Western bus stop provide safe, direct connections to the building entry. In addition, the path from the off-site perimeter parking also leads to the main entrance. Servicing occurs from the shared west driveway, eliminating the need for additional access of the busy Western Road.

Save this picture!

Inspired by the City of London ’s reputation as the “Forest City”, the main approach to the building is lined with trees. The existing landscape is preserved and enhanced, particularly the sweeping arc of trees along Brescia Road. Western Road is reinforced by the deliberate siting of the building, while its fast moving nature is also acknowledged by a stone garden wall that creates a buffer. The remaining perimeter landscape of the building is serene and is an ideal space for “thinking in motion” and mind clearing breaks. Low, cut-stone walls in front of the main entrance ramp set off the rough stone of the amphitheatre enclosure and another garden wall protects the dining pavilion. Two smaller protected gardens extend from the Reading Room and the Dining Pavilion. The idyllic and peaceful campus landscape is a contrast to the livelier interior of the Richard Ivey Building.

Save this picture!

Sustainability and Accessibility:
Strategies and various technologies were employed to achieve a sustainable design. Low-emitting argon windows in thermal frames, lighting occupancy sensors, and heat recovery on ventilated air help improve energy performance by 51%. Efficient washroom features reduce potable water use by 58% and landscaping that favours native species are part of a strategy that extends a “Forest City” sensibility across the entire site. The building is registered and is expected to achieve LEED Gold certification.

Save this picture!

A secure and healthy workplace includes a compact plan with controlled entry points and access to a courtyard. The quadrangle layout of the building maximizes natural light—75% of spaces have access to daylight and operable windows allow cross-ventilation throughout. During construction, 81% of waste was diverted from landfill. Full barrier-free design makes all building areas and landscape paths equally accessible and enjoyable to
all users.

Save this picture!

Community and Identity:
The new Richard Ivey Building supports the Ivey community at all scales and reinforces the Ivey signature by anchoring education in community. Built for quiet contemplation as well as collaboration, HPA’s design attracts, inspires, and unites the school. The new building respects the past by using a contemporary application of timeless materials which echoes the Western University campus tradition. Its siting and massing establish a clear direction for future campus growth while creating a beacon in Western’s renowned forested landscape and a signature building along a main city thoroughfare.

Furnace Repair Hamilton, Whitby, London and Emergency Heating Service #air #cleaner #mississauga, #home #heating


Heating Air Conditioning Repair Emergency Services

Ultra Comfort brings comfort to our customer’s home by providing them with high quality heating and cooling products and services.
Our core offerings include: Furnace Repair, Emergency Furnace Repair, Gas Fireplaces, Furnaces, Air Conditioning, Humidifiers, Air Cleaners, HRVs, Tankless Instant Water Heaters, Boilers, Water Heaters, Ductless ACs, Solar systems, equipment repairs and services.
Our Mission is one of continuous improvement in our methods and response to our customer needs through a cooperative effort stressing QUALITY, SERVICE, and INTEGRITY.
Our teams possess technical excellence and a great understanding of the needs of our clients and their homes. Ultra Comfort technicians are NATE and TSSA certified.
We provide residential and commercial heating and cooling systems. Our service warranties are guaranteed for one full year.

Modulating high furnace Is like highway driving, making slight operating adjustments while achieving maximum efficiency.
This new condensing furnace with a modulating gas valve operates with more finesse to reduce temperature fluctuations, providing consistent indoor temperature, quiet operation, and an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) of 98.2%.

Central Air conditioners: The efficiency of air conditioners is often rated by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). The higher the SEER rating of a unit, the more energy efficient it is.
Air conditioners with 14.5 seer rating and higher are eligible to receive government rebates.

Tankless Water Heaters heat water only when you need it. So you save money and reduce waste by not heating and reheating the same tank of water. Tankless water heaters are placed in-line like a conventional tank-style heater. However, it does not continuously heat a tank of water that is waiting to be used. When opening a hot water tap, or starting the dishwasher, the Rinnai tankless water heater recognizes the need for hot water and starts the heating process.

Humidifiers: Maintain your home’s most comfortable humidity level automatically with a Whole-house Humidifier. Proper humidity provides a more comfortable living environment at a lower temperature, so you can turn down your thermostat for energy savings.

Air Cleaners and purifiers have a drastic effect in the air quality of your home. In order to keep your house both warm during winter, and cold during summer, sealants make your house air-tight.

Full service Duct Cleaning encompasses the entire forced-air system, from each register and return down the duct lines to and including all main duct lines in the ceiling of the basement. Finally, the air handling side of the furnace is cleaned to remove any loose dirt and debris from around the air conditioning coils, exterior of heat exchanger, blower compartment and the plenum.

Heat recovery ventilator (HRV) can help make mechanical ventilation more cost effective by reclaiming energy from exhaust airflows. HRVs use heat exchangers to heat or cool incoming fresh air, recapturing 60 to 80 percent of the conditioned temperatures that would otherwise be lost.

Fireplaces are either direct vent or inserts.
Direct vent fireplaces are designed to be vented directly out the outside wall.
Inset fireplaces are designed to be inserted into an existing wood burning fireplace. A chimney liner is required to be installed with an insert fireplace.
