CECA U of T Student Chapter helps Good Shepherd Centre
Thursday, June 15, 2017
Question: What happens when a group of creative U of T engineering students tries to make a homeless shelter greener?
Answer: The lights go out. And then they come on again, exactly when they’re needed!
That’s just one of the innovations that happened after a Canadian Electrical Contractors Association (CECA) U of T Student Chapter proposed energy-efficient improvements for the 100-year-old building that houses Good Shepherd Centre. The LED lighting retrofit was submitted as part of their Green Energy Challenge submission to an international competition, in which they won fourth place.
After the students did the planning, a collaborative group of Associations, Contractors, and Suppliers funded and implemented the lighting retrofit. They did the work as a tribute to the memory of George Docherty, who was a prominent member of the Electrical Contractors Association of Ontario and of the Greater Toronto Electrical Contractors Association. His daughter Lisa Docherty will represent the family at the media event.
