MCW CES starts work on the University of Toronto’s $100M+ decarbonization project

February 07, 2024

MCW Custom Energy Solutions Ltd. (MCW CES) is proud to be a delivery partner for University of Toronto’s Project Leap. Project Leap is the first major project in helping the University reach Climate Positive operations on the St. George Campus by 2050.

The $138M project will reduce annual Greenhouse Gas emissions on the St. George Campus by over 50% through a combination of strategic heating electrification, thermal energy recovery and redistribution, and conservation retrofits across many of the campus’ most energy-intense buildings. The project is supported by the Canada Infrastructure Bank’s Building Retrofits Initiative and will be delivered by MCW CES and partners under a Performance-based model.

Project Leap has been in development since early 2023. Through joint efforts by MCW’s Toronto, Moncton and Winnipeg offices the Detailed Study phase was completed in November 2023 and the project is now commencing its Implementation phase. Detailed Design started in earnest in January 2024 and construction on site is set to begin in the summer.
