Finlayson Reach

victoria, BC

Finlayson Reach is the first high-rise condominium development at the Bear Mountain Resort. This 11-storey luxury property includes 160 residential suites with over 20 unique layouts, 2 levels of secure underground parkade, a 15-seat home theatre, eating and entertaining areas, fitness rooms, squash courts and outdoor tennis courts.
The high-rise design required specialized ventilation, water pressurization, and fire/smoke protection strategies. The building is 100% air conditioned by water-source heat pumps to minimize the net energy use of the building: the building's hydronic loop transfers excess heat from one area to another that needs heating. Additionally, in-slab services were used as much as possible to maximize suite ceiling heights. The total cost of changes driven by the mechanical team tallied to only 0.6% of the $7.4 million mechanical contract value.
