An ASHRAE Technology Award for the MEC Vancouver Store
March 8, 2022
We are thrilled to share the news that mechanical/electrical lead on MEC Vancouver, Pageau Morel, has received second-place for MEC Vancouver at the 2022 ASHRAE Technology Awards.
During the winter conference of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), Pageau Morel received a second-place Technology Award in the New Commercial Buildings category for the Mountain Equipment Company (MEC) store project in Vancouver. The international ASHRAE Technology Awards recognize outstanding achievements by members who have successfully applied innovative building design for effective energy management and indoor air quality.
MEC Vancouver store is a new 10,500 sq.m. construction that includes an underground parking, retail spaces and administrative offices. It is the first building in Vancouver to provide excess energy to the Neighbourhood Energy Utility heating network (NEU), a district heating initiative that provides hot water by recycling waste thermal energy from sewage. The building injects in the district energy network almost twice as much energy than it takes from it.
We are grateful to have worked with such an amazing team of consultants on this project.
