DESCRIPTION

Located on the south campus of the University of British Columbia, this mixed-use project consists of 72 market rental residential units built on top of a commercial retail podium.  The building – clad in brick, aluminium and hardi-siding – was designed and constructed to the highest sustainability standards.  Achieving ‘REAP Gold’ status, the project incorporates ultra-high efficiency boilers, low flow plumbing fixtures, lighting occupancy sensors and an innovative heat recovery system with a neighbouring building which houses a food store.  Heat rejected from the food store freezers/coolers is ‘recovered’ to preheat the domestic hot water for this building.
