Industrial can have character
Summerland Research and Development Centre, Mechanical/Electrical Infrastructure Upgrade
The project included the addition of 3 cooling towers, replacement of the condenser water system, chilled water system, controls, air handling unit upgrade, central air handling system upgrade and other mechanical and electrical upgrades.
A facility service building was provided to service the cooling towers. It contains a maintenance oﬃce, auto-feed equipment, storage of chemical pallets, and testing equipment. We designed the building to complement the natural landscape of the site. The use of materials and the facade composition is carefully detailed to give the building a contemporary character, despite its industrial nature.
