Norman Disney & Young, A Tetra Tech Company (NDY), is completing plumbing and mechanical design solutions for the Aquilini Centre South in Vancouver, BC.
Rogers Arena is an indoor sports and entertainment complex that hosts some of Vancouver’s biggest events. It also has facilities for ice hockey, basketball, concerts and a variety of other indoor sports.
Recently, the venue has been expanding into a precinct-level development, with two of three new towers built across Rogers Arena in the heart of Vancouver CBD.
As such, the mechanical and hydraulics system must cope with high variations in temperature and volume. Aquilini Development engaged NDY to design solutions for the mechanical and plumbing platform of the 32-storey South Tower of Rogers Arena.
Results and Innovations
Our team has developed a work plan for the plumbing and mechanical upgrades of the 32-storey residential tower with multi-purpose rooms, fitness area, meeting room, amenity lounge and lobbies (excluding the podium-level car park).
Sustainability was identified as a key performance indicator, and the project satisfies as a LEED Gold Equivalent Building. Several LEED Credits included in our scope includes stormwater design: quality control, water use reduction of 37% and enhanced refrigerant management.
NDY partnered with Aquilini Development , BMZ, Francl Architecture, Nemetz and Pitt Meadows Plumbing towards completing the successful project.
