George Brown College

Toronto, Ontario, Canada (2012)

George Brown College in downtown Toronto is one of the top Culinary Arts Schools in North America. When the school envisioned an expansion and renovation of their Culinary Arts program they turned to Cini Little, Toronto.

George Brown College has chosen Halton Solutions for the ventilation of their kitchen.

Having done numerous successful and energy efficient projects with Halton, Cini-Little International turned to us to for a unique design concept. Not only did they want to incorporate the Energy Efficient Capture Jet hood that would save over 30% of the exhaust air compared to conventional systems, but they also wanted a way to have a demand based system.

Under normal circumstances that would not be a major challenge, but there were anywhere from 5 to 7 hoods each on 4 separate exhaust systems.

The challenge came from the expressed need to balance and control the individual hoods on each exhaust system depending on cooking. Impossible? Enter the Halton M.A.R.V.E.L. system. This unique Demand Control Ventilation system with Automated Balancing Dampers (ABD’s) allows each Capture Jet hood to be individually controlled and the gross exhaust on the system to be reduced proportionately. Halton quickly got to work laying out 24 hoods in 4 different cooking labs on the M.A.R.V.E.L. platform. The system was commissioned through the web linker incorporated in M.A.R.V.E.L. that allows for the Capture Jet hood’s sensors to be “seen” via the web.
One of the students was asked during a class if he was comfortable in the lab and if the hoods were working his exact words were” it is great, it just sucks the smoke right up and it disappears!” Although not the most qualified HVAC person ever interviewed, the point got across, the hoods and M.A.R.V.E.L. systems were a success!
