Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, announced one of its projects, 1121 and 1147 Thornton Road South, has been awarded the 2022 Oshawa Urban Design Award of Excellence by the City of Oshawa.
The project consists of two multi-unit industrial buildings designed for Panattoni Development Company Canada. The buildings, totaling more than 630,000 square feet are situated on a 27-acre site at 1121 and 1147 Thornton Road South, in Oshawa, Ontario.
“We are proud to have worked closely with Panattoni Development to design innovative, flexible structures that support employee wellbeing and are a source of pride for this city. said Frank Di Roma, Principal for Ware Malcomb. “We are in good company on this year’s list and congratulate all the winners.”
With a focus on occupant wellbeing and comfort, the design ensures natural light flows into the warehouses through large, punched out windows. The rear building loading docks feature covered canopies that provide shelter from the natural elements. Drive-in doors and mechanical louvers allow natural air to flow through the warehouses. To create an environment that is accessible and useable by all, all entrances have barrier-free access and on-site bike racks to accommodate cyclists.
The development’s modern exterior design features a blend of white precast ribbed panels that includes curtain walls and ACM panels at the main entrances and midpoint of the building. The main entrances have a controlled blend of massing between the ACM panels and curtain walls. The building exterior features bronze, deep blue and silver ACM paired with bronze spandrel panels and bronze vision glass. The land between the two buildings was maximized with the creation of a functional shared courtyard for loading docks and trailer parking that is screened from the main road.
To boost energy efficiency, the buildings feature white roofs, precast panels made with a blend of recycled concrete, LED wall/packs, LED poles and a full sprinkler system. The site is enhanced by drought-resistant landscape design that reduces water consumption.
The 2022 Urban Design Award of Excellence awards, hosted by the City of Oshawa, celebrate projects that show excellent design and enhance Oshawa’s image. They acknowledge the contributions that architects, landscape architects, urban designers, planners, developers, and builders make to Oshawa’s appearance and quality of life. Eleven local projects were honored as 2022 winners and the list can be viewed here.

Acknowledging Helio’s potential to revolutionize liver cancer early detection.
Helio Genomics, the company behind the HelioLiver Test, has been awarded “North American Company of the Year in Liver Cancer Early Detection with Liquid Biopsy” by Frost and Sullivan.
Frost & Sullivan’s Company of the Year Award is its top honor. It recognizes the market participant that exemplifies innovation, performance, and unrivaled customer care. Before giving the award, Frost & Sullivan analysts assess:
- How the company addresses unmet needs
- Visionary scenarios through megatrends
- Leadership focus
- Financial performance
- Best practices implementation
- Price/performance value
- Brand equity
- And more
Helio’s vision centers on detecting cancer early to save lives and improve treatment options. It connects domain and operational knowledge with technology to help individuals check for cancer quickly, early, and often – giving them the best chance at not only survival, but access to curative treatment options.
The company’s scientific team employs a multi-dimensional approach, leveraging AI and machine learning to recognize distinctive and proprietary DNA signatures. They then combine these signatures with protein biomarkers to predict cancer presence as early as Stage I, where patients still have access to curative treatment options..
Helio Genomic’s unique integration of multi-modal and multi-omics data generates deeper and richer biological insights. This can provide essential knowledge on how cancer exists and evolves, advancing precision medicine to guide diagnosis, treatment guidance, and disease monitoring.
The flagship product, HelioLiverTM, is a multi-analyte blood test for the early detection of liver cancer. It leverages the company’s novel technology platform for analyzing cell-free DNA methylation patterns and serum protein markers to detect early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) from a simple blood draw. By being easy to use, accessible, more sensitive than traditional blood tests that only use a single marker, HelioLiver can change the dynamic of the liver cancer landscape and flip the scales from late to early diagnosis.
“Detecting cancer early is the key to defeating it,” says Helio Genomics CEO, Justin Li. “Many screening methods are inconvenient, expensive, and unclear. Our goal is to make finding cancer as easy as a simple blood draw. Every patient deserves the best possible chance at beating their disease – and that’s what we’re giving them.”
Frost & Sullivan believes Helio is in a prime position to drive liver cancer early detection with liquid biopsy and become a leader in the LBx (liquid biopsy) market in the coming years.
“HelioLiver provides richer biological data than competing technologies, delivering greater test sensitivity and specificity,” Says Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Research Analyst, Supriya Lala. “Simultaneously, by enabling early cancer detection, the test eliminates the potential need for expensive therapies and diagnostics (at late-stage detection), lowering the overall cost burden of the healthcare economy.”

Founded in 2016 and headquartered in Irvine, California, Helio Genomics is a cancer diagnostics technology and tests developer. The company focuses on developing and advancing cutting-edge AI-enabled technologies to detect and screen cancer at its earliest stage. To learn more, please visit https://heliogenomics.com/.
