Hamilton, ON

Centre for Climate Change Management

The Centre for Climate Change Management is located on the fourth floor of The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation. The 6,500 SF, $2.4 M project, is designed as an open workplace enabling creative collision between sustainable partners.

The Centre is the result of a partnership between the City of Hamilton, the City of Burlington and Sustainable Hamilton Burlington. Completed in 2019, it provides an important connection between the region’s future net zero workforce and industries and leaders bringing sustainability to the community. It is home to initiatives such as the Bay Area Climate Change, the Industry Partnership Initiative, Campus Carbon Management Initiative and Office of Campus Sustainability and Climate Change.

Offices are replaced with workplace zones, including a large open dedicated work area. What instantly speaks to the Centre’s sustainable mission is a textural moss wall that greets you as you enter the space. The natural piece is both an artistic statement while doubling as acoustic control. The backdrop of the offices is a rooftop garden, punctuated by the large structural trees which hold the photovoltaic panels that make The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation so distinct.

The workplace has generous vistas of the entire City from both sides, on display to their full advantage in the reception, waiting rooms, boardrooms and kitchen. It floods the space with natural light which supports the building’s automated controls, helping to achieve its ambitious energy reduction targets.
