As Mechanical Engineering Consultant for the major renovation and expansion of the City of North Vancouver’s Civic Centre, AME is excited to congratulate everyone involved in the building’s extensive range of sustainability features which have been officially recognized by the CaGBC with LEED Silver certification.
Mechanical features include passive ventilation, thermal modelling for comfort conditions, in-slab heating and cooling, and heat recovery ventilation. The building makes use of natural cross ventilation with air being drawn through the area and exhausted out the atrium high clerestory window vents.
The completed Civic Centre renovation project delivers a more sustainable City Hall, improved public access and new community space. The new City Hall now benefits from sustainability enhancements, better public access and a seismic upgrade.
