We are providing mechanical, sustainability, and fire protection consulting services for this large-scale heritage development project in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Vancouver’s original Canada Post Office building on 349 West Georgia St. has undergone a dramatic revitalization. The Post is now a 1.5 million sq-ft, mixed-use complex that includes two office towers (21 and 20 stories), four stories of retail, and two levels of underground parking.
The development is aiming for LEED Gold (CS) certification. By retaining its heritage façade to incorporate part of the City’s history, the project eliminated 25,000 tonnes of carbon that would have otherwise been emitted in the demolition and construction process. Other sustainability features include an efficient building envelope and heat recovery chillers.
Our team also provided mechanical and electrical consulting engineering services for the early Letter of Engagement stage of this large-scale city-block redevelopment.
With Amazon ready to occupy one of the office towers, The Post is now one of Vancouver’s great office landmarks and a symbol of the city's dedication to preserving its heritage while embracing a greener future.
