Project Details

  • Location: Dartmouth, NS
  • Date: 2013
  • Client: PCL Constructors
  • Sector: Institutional
  • Service: Mechanical, Fire Protection

Atlantica provided all HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection systems.  The sprinkler system was a glass ball system and includes total pre-action packs. Challenges included an arced (curved) building footprint with no square corners and high-security access throughout.

We also constructed two special mechanical systems, a partial lab airflow system, and a complete Optinet air sampling system. The Optinet system takes samples of air remotely throughout the facility and routes them to a centralized suite of sensors, providing intelligent input to building ventilation systems for energy efficiency and high-quality indoor environmental quality.
