Project Description

NorQuest College Heritage Tower (HTA) Renovation


As part of its overall Campus Masterplan, Edmonton’s NorQuest College planned to renovate its main downtown building, Heritage Tower (Building A), or HTA. Built in 1971, the building consists of a basement plus eight floors above ground and a mechanical penthouse floor.

This significant transformation project is designed to better accommodate the growing needs of the College by consolidating and reconfiguring teaching, lab and office spaces, allocating Student Program Delivery space to the lower levels, and adding a fitness room and showers/change areas.
AME site verified and carried out 3D scans of all existing mechanical services within the building to ensure the mechanical scope of work was clearly identified and co-ordinated with all disciplines.

The mechanical scope of work undertaken by AME includes extensive refurbishment and replacement of air handling units, chillded water pumps, HVAC and hydronic distrubuter systems, and HVAC terminal units. A new Building Management System was provided.
Phased construction will minimize disruption and allow HTA to remain partially occupied for the duration of the renovations with total completion and occupancy planned for September 2019.
