Project of the year
COMMERCIAL (Under $50M)
The latest addition to PCL Construction Management Inc.'s Edmonton campus is warm, inviting and light-filled thanks to an expanded curtain wall that gives 90 per cent of tenants a view.
Built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standards, the 83,000-square-foot building, Top Project in the Commerical-Under $50 Million category, includes a green roof, low-flow plumbing fixtures and energy-efficient building systems. The mechanical system redistributes heat from the data centre in the basement to occupied spaces. Rainwater from the roof is stored in a cistern in the basement and used to water gardens.
Not surprisingly, PCL was the general contractor for the project, which was designed by DIALOG Alberta Architecture Engineering Interior Design Planning Inc., which also handled structural, mechanical and electrical engineering. The landscape design was done by Carlyle and Associates Landscape Architecture.
