www.raic.org/2009 Sustainable Schools She was able to apply that eco-mindset in the 1980s while working as an associate at Toronto’s Moriyama & Toshima, the architectural firmrenowned for creating environments that seamlessly blend people with nature. But Penny’s destiny was to return to school – this time as an architect. Her fi nal project for Moriyama & Toshima was the design of Toronto’s now-bilingual Owen Public School, located at the time in the city of North York. In 1992, after 10 years with the firm, she briefl y went into private practice and in 1994, joined the North York Board of Education as chief architect, managing the design and construction department. She continued in that role when North York was folded into Toronto 10 years ago, and fi ve years later, was promoted to her current executive position with the school board. It’s a big job, overseeing a lot of real estate and personnel, but one made easier since Essential Elements of Successful Exteriors Overall Design Integrity System Selection 1 2 3 4 Enduring Material Quality Installation Know-How For over 30 years, Dryvit Systems Canada has been an integral part of your building envelope.

That point was made clear last year at the International Union of Architects Conference held in Toronto, which Penny co-chaired. A group of students from David and Mary Thomson Collegiate Institute and Bendale Business and Technical Institute, both in the TDSB, were invited to address delegates from around the world. The teens outlined their vision for a new campus, which would accommodate their schools with Donwood Park Junior Public School – all of them currently on a 37-acre site Scarborough. The plan has yet to be approved by school trustees. « They told us they want a wireless environment embedded in nature, » says Penny of the students’idea to make their new three-school campus (for about 2,000 students) eco-friendly and equipped with the latest technology. « They want to be able to move with their laptops anywhere in the building and want their school to be green, filled with light and lots of glass. They see those concepts as symbiotic, and that will be our challenge when we design the new campus for them. » Meantime, students at Toronto’s William Lyon Mackenzie Collegiate Institute have formeda group to promote renewable, alternative sources of energy at their school. Called SWITCH (Solar and Wind Initiatives Towards CHange), the initiative will soon result in the installation of a $75,000 solar panel at the school and has infl uenced studies in math, science, social science and business. Combining education with action is the whole point of the eco-awareness campaign at the TDSB, says Penny. « If we can’t demonstrate environmental stewardship to our students in a way that makes sense to them, then what hope do we have for the future ? » In addition to EcoSchools, architect Sheila Penny, FRAIC has also worked to ensure rigourous selection processes for hiring architects for schools in her district. In addition to requiring a proven track record with technical details, project management and liability protection to ensure that the best architects are chosen to the job, the Board looks at the firm’s history of designing quality institutional buildings that consider the long-termuse of the structure and its place within its surroundings.

Pace. Performance. Precision. In education, school boards and design professionals choose NRB for a modular construction solution that challenges conventional site-built methods time after time, with : Pace. With NRB, construction schedules are significantly accelerated, often by as much as 50% or more. At the same time your site is being developed, your building is under construction off site in our controlled environment. This reduced timeline means that most of the disruption to the site can often be limited to just summer months when students are away, resulting in better site safety and security. Performance. Engineered structural steel, pre-poured concrete floors, energy efficient HVAC and electrical systems all come together in a customized design package tailored to your needs, without compromise to architectural expression. Strength, longevity and enhanced sustainability are cornerstones of our designs. Precision. Our unique « Build-Together » construction process blended with meticulous design practices mean all building systems are installed and tested at the plant prior to shipment. Fit and finish are exact, so site installation is faster, reducing disturbance to the surrounding area. If you want a quality building with the permanence and performance of conventional construction in less time, call NRB at 1-800-465-7594, e-mail us at inquiries@nrb-inc.com or visit us at www.nrb-inc.com.
