How Green it Is

 

The impact of global warming is happening now, and Grove Project Management is proud of our commitment to ensuring our projects meet and exceed current environmental standards and recommendations.  Our Fallingbrook project located on Kingston Road in the Beach, is one such project which successfully incorporated a green roof into the design.  The project which was completed in 2009, was the first condominium building on Kingston Road to effectively integrate green roof technology into its build.    Science is still perfecting this technology every day and Grove will be striving to utilize this vital tool while incorporating other key green standards into current and future projects.

Read here how the University of Toronto’s GRIT lab are working to perfect Green Roof technology to adapt to different building applications, as the ever changing growth of the city demands.

King Edward’s Crystal Ballroom

Perhaps some of the best news of late concerning restoration and renewal of by-gone era venues, is that of the complete refurbishment of the magnificent Crystal Ballroom in the King Edward Hotel.  This section of the iconic King Eddy was forced to shut down in 1979 as it failed to meet with the city’s building codes at the time.

There has been much anticipation surrounding the unveiling of this beautiful space which may have been lost to us for well over 3 decades, but has returned in all its former glory.  Read the article from the Toronto Star here to find out more.
