Project Description

The Francis Winspear Centre for Music is a performing arts centre located in the downtown core of Edmonton. The Winspear is a 1900 seat concert hall with a 200 seat orchestra platform. This Facility came with its own unique set of challenges; one of which was, of course, the acoustics. The stringent acoustic design criteria allowing music to be performed ‘unplugged’ required innovative mechanical design of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system in the main concert hall environment. The centre is complete with amenities such as solace rooms (used for warm up prior to a performance), dressing rooms, lounges, a rehearsal hall and a music library. MCW Hemisphere Engineering provided the mechanical engineering services for the Winspear.
