Early this year, the City of North Vancouver commissioned the second phase of the Pipe Shop. Primarily a building systems scope comprising a new HVAC system, complete with AC to condition the space, along with new lighting and controls – the Pipe Shop will soon be a comfortable space for event goers.
There are only two architectural elements in this phase, but they will have a dramatic impact on the space. Acoustic panels will fasten to the ceiling to reduce the resonance of the room and an architecturally unique stair will provide access to a future lounge space in the mezzanine. In the interim, the mezzanine will be for staff access only.
