North Vancouver Civic Centre Revitalization
The award-winning City of North Vancouver Civic Centre Revitalization project is a $11.5 million LEED Silver Certified major renovation and expansion project. The project consists of a partial renovation of the existing 1970s modern heritage City Hall building (27,000 sq.ft. renovation) and the expansion of the facility into a vacated library structure (11,000 sq.ft. new construction). The structure of the old library building has been seismically upgraded and provides most of the new area for City Hall.
The Civic Centre utilizes the Lonsdale District Energy System to deliver high-efficiency, cost-effective sustainable energy, while reducing community-wide GHG emissions. Mechanical features include: passive ventilation, thermal modeling for comfort conditions, in-slab heating and cooling, and heat recovery ventilation. The building makes use of natural cross ventilation with air being drawn through the area and exhausted out the atrium high clerestory window vents.
