poirier sport & leisure complex

coquitlam, bc

AME and IMEC Mechanical received the 2011 Canadian Consulting Engineering Award of Excellence for this contemporary sport and leisure complex. The project is a $62 million, 142,000 sq.ft. facility, which was completed 10 months ahead of schedule. The complex boasts a 2,000-seat Main Arena, an NHL-size rink, hybrid curling/ice rink (year-round ice), multi-purpose rooms, offices, server room & commercial kitchen. The unique sustainable innovation on this project was utilizing Thermenex: Thermal Energy Sharing. Thermenex greatly reduces energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at a lower cost than most other green technologies. This new energy exchange system minimizes the creation of heat and maximizes the reuse of thermal energy for both heating and cooling. Thermenex is a pipe with a thermal gradient with control valves that functions as a hub for the efficient management of heat.
