Birchcliff Urban Towns Geothermal Energy System

Salas O’Brien provided the planning, design, and implementation of the geothermal energy system for this 52-unit luxury townhouse development overlooking Lake Ontario on Toronto’s Scarborough Bluffs. Participating in all project phases, we streamlined delivery with verified buildout for optimal functionality, managing nuances in execution with contextual understanding to facilitate bringing the project to market on schedule.

The four-story stacked townhome development is in the heart of a highly desirable neighborhood of retail, restaurants, and beachfront. Salas O’Brien designed the building HVAC systems with en suite geothermal heat pumps connected to a common geothermal heat exchanger under the building. The system utilizes a gas boiler for hybrid heating.
