Jeneece Place is located on the grounds of Victoria General Hospital, providing a home away from home for families who need to travel to Victoria for medical care. The building features a hydronic heating and cooling system designed especially for the comfort and control of the families and children who will live in the building. Each bedroom has an independent heating and cooling fan coil, for complete occupant control. The art, games, and TV rooms benefit from in-floor radiant heating to ensure the most comfortable temperature at all corners. These components are efficiently served by a condensing gas boiler and compact heat pump. In addition, multiple natural gas outlets were installed around the perimeter of the building for radiant heaters, whether they are installed now or in the future. AME reduced its normal compensation by 60% in part of a larger community initiative.
Jeneece Place started in 2009 as the dream of Jeneece Edroff, who was only 15 years old at the time. Diagnosed at 3 years old with a genetic condition called Neurofibromatosis, Jeneece is a fundraising phenom and prolific philanthropist on Vancouver Island.
