This federal office building demonstrates the Canadian government’s commitment to the environment. It achieved LEED-NC Gold certification and ​received PEI’s Lieutenant Governor’s Award of Excellence in Architecture, and the Solar PV Project of the Year Award.​

We performed all mechanical services for this new construction, incuding ventilation, heating, plumbing, building controls, and sprinkler systems.

The project includes a number of unique mechanical systems and innovative and environmental features:

  • We used the concrete structure as a heat/cooling sink moving air over the surfaces
  • The same in-floor piping is used for heating and cooling
  • Rainwater harvesting is used for flushing water closets
  • Water-free urinals, low-flow and dual-flush plumbing fixtures
  • Passive solar and open venting for air movement
  • Sprinkler system design was specific to high ceilings and large open areas

The facility also uses the district heating system that runs throughout the city.
