Rock Bay Landing
Victoria Cool Aid Society’s LEED Gold Certified Rock Bay Shelter provides 83 shelter beds, 23 self-contained transitional housing units, and two family shelter units in Victoria for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The 5-storey concrete development also includes amenity space, an enclosed courtyard for tenant use and office space for counseling and support services. The project called for a solar hot water thermal energy system to provide energy efficiency for the shelter.
AME designed a 26 evacuated tube solar collector system which will ensure the facility remains sustainable well into the future. Other sustainable features include: aerothermal heat pumps and a geoexchange system which provides greater year-round efficiency.
