Project Description

As a LEED Silver targeted project, the Edmonton New Remand Centre (ENRC)was built on a 16-hectare site that will ultimately house 2,000 inmates and is the largest facility of its kind in Canada.

Each of the inmate housing units are formed into separate pods or buildings in the complex and are provided with separate mechanical plants so that each building can operate independent of another. The new centre is based around a video court and video visitation model which decreases the amount of travel for inmates and their visitors. This model reduces the carbon footprint of the facility’s transportation requirements.

MCW Hemisphere provided the mechanical engineering services for this 5500m2 project. To ensure an energy efficient building, several mechanical considerations were implemented. These included condensing boilers, condensing domestic hot water heaters, variable speed pumping, air-to-air heat recovery systems and variable speed chillers. Through the use of these systems, we will be able to achieve a natural gas savings of over 50% of that of a similar type of facility. The Edmonton New Remand Centre was selected as the PMINAC Project of the Year 2013 by the Project Management Institute, Northern Alberta Chapter.
