Vancouver Transit Building    

Vancouver Transit Building


Western Mechanical Services was retained by Translink to provide the commissioning services for the environmentally friendly $ 37 million Vancouver Transit Centre, completed in 2006 as a LEED Project. This facility houses the second largest and most modern electric trolley fleet in North America. It replaced the Oakridge Transit Centre, located at 41st Avenue and Oak Street in Vancouver. It is operated by the Coast Mountain Bus Company, a subsidiary of Translink.

The Centre is also used as a training facility for all Coast Mountain services and has a cafeteria that is open to the public. The building has a recycled water bus wash and an onsite wastewater treatment plant.

The mechanical systems included natural gas hot water heating boilers, variable and constant volume air handling systems, radiant hot water heating panels, fan coil systems, chilled water cooling systems, paint booth ventilation systems and gas controlled exhaust ventilation systems for the vehicle areas with makeup air ventilation systems.
