Western Mechanical Services completed air and water balancing on this office tower building in downtown Vancouver.
Western Mechanical Services was retained to provide commissioning services for the $ 300 million, 28986 sq meter (312,000 sq ft) award winning Patient Care Centre at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, which opened in March, 2011 to replace all 400 existing beds and to add an additional 120 beds, most of which are private. The building was designed to utilize energy-efficient equipment and sustainable materials, resources and mechanical systems, to achieve LEED Gold certification, based on a target score of 39 to 42 LEED points.
The new hospital, managed by the Vancouver Island Health Authority has no surgical suites, pathology labs or diagnostic facilities. These are all located in an adjacent building. The Patient Care Centre utilizes a revolutionary more humanized approach to patient care, intended to improve recovery times and special attention was given to infection control throughout the building.
Increased access to nature and the use of fresh air ventilation systems were key design features incorporated to contribute to overall health. The building makes use of natural light inside during peak power usage, optimizing the electrical lighting energy required.
Vancouver’s first “stand-alone” and homogeneous French-language secondary school École secondaire Jules-Verne, located in the Oakridge neighbourhood of Vancouver opened in 2009. The Conseil scolaire francophone de la C.-B. (BC’s Francophone School District) (CSF) is committed to a world-wide eco-school program, which aims to coordinate education with sustainable development within schools and to integrate environmental learning within all subject areas. The school achieved a “green flag award for its commitment to sustainable development.
The school building was designed and constructed to LEED Silver standards.
Western Mechanical Services has been active in the LEED program, since its inception and we are pleased to have had a role in the construction process for this project by providing the air and water balancing for the building mechanical systems.
