PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

Project Details

The City of North Vancouver Civic Centre Revitalization project is an $11.5 million major renovation and expansion project involving partial renovation of the existing 1970s heritage City Hall building, expansion
of the City Hall into a re-purposed former City library building, and enhancement of the Civic Plaza.

Mechanical features include: passive ventilation, thermal modeling 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.
