Canadian Pacific Operations Centre
An existing Locomotive Repair Shop located at the CP Rail Ogden Yards was converted into two floors of office space totaling 220,000 sq.ft. The project also includes a 20,000 sq.ft. cafeteria and kitchen addition. Other specialized areas in the building include a fitness room and a 24-hour computer monitoring station.
The building’s heating consists of a perimeter hot water heating system utilizing high efficiency boilers. Air conditioning and ventilation are provided by an efficient variable volume type air handling system. The computer monitoring area in the building required a specialized redundant HVAC system. Customized A/C units were utilized in order to provide air conditioning and ventilation on a 24-hours basis. The mechanical systems are controlled and monitored by a direct digital building management system.
Designed and built on a fast-track basis, the building was occupied 15 months after the start of design.
