North Vancouver, BC
The City of North Vancouver Civic Centre Revitalization project is a $11.5 million major renovation to expand City Hall into the old library. The project involves partial renovation of the existing 1970s modern heritage City Hall building and expands the facility into a vacated library structure. This not only re-purposed the former City library building but also revitalized some areas of City Hall, and enhance Civic Plaza.
Certified LEED Silver, the enhanced Civic Centre utilizes the Lonsdale District Energy System to deliver high-efficiency, cost-effective sustainable energy, while reducing community-wide GHG emissions. Mechanical features incorporated into this project include: passive ventilation, thermal modeling for comfort conditions, in-slab heating and cooling, and heat recovery ventilation. These features have all contributed to the building's improved energy performance and LEED Silver certification.
