The new Athletic Centre opened September 6 2012 after being closed in 1999 after the last Maple Leaf Hockey game of the season. It has now been renovated and split up into many uses. A large Loblaws takes up most of the main floor, a LCBO on the second, and the larger part of the remaining multiple stories is divided by the Ryerson Mattamy Athletic Centre which includes an full sized ice rink, gym, running track as well as lecture halls and classrooms for Ryerson University.
Two tours were offered on Monday evening, one at 4 and another at 5. Here we were privileged to see the new technology added to the old building which included:
- A large size heat exchanger, roughly 7 feet tall (as seen below)
- Two massive chillers with touch screen display (as seen below)
- Six large boilers
- And a great venue for the guest speaker – Gary Berlin of Pennsylvania a specialist in Relative Humidity relating to human comfort levels.
I hope that the event on November 4th will have a stronger Humber presence and I look forward to seeing many of you signing up for our school tour of F.E.S.T.I (Fire & Emergency Services Training Institute) scheduled for October 22nd and 23rd.
Registration information will be emailed to you soon!
