TORONTO — YC Condominiums is a recipient of the 2019 Structural Engineering Award of Excellence from the Council on Tall Buildings & Urban Habitat.
RJC Engineer’s (RJC) YC Condos, located at Yonge and College streets in downtown Toronto, is a 63-storey residential tower that includes three levels of retail, two levels of office space and five levels of below grade parking.
Due to the building’s narrow profile, in order to reduce wind motions, RJC recognized the opportunity to implement Viscoelastic Coupling Dampers, which were co-developed and implemented by members of Kinetica, indicates a release.
YC Condos is the first building to install and utilize this patented technology.
The award will be handed out in Shenzhen, China at the 2019 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference in April.
