Pearson Dogwood Parcel A

Building FunctionResidential Highrise  
Gross Floor Area44,500 square meters (478,000) square feet
LocationVancouver, British Columbia 
Scope– Code compliance energy modeling 
– LEED energy modeling 
Project DescriptionThe development also referred to as Cambie Gardens, is part of planned master community consisting of residential, mixed-use and supportive healthcare services. Parcel A comprises of two 20 +storey towers with a shared podium. Edge assisted the mechanical design team to develop energy-efficient building systems.
Value Added– The Domestic Hot Water (DHW) system is designed to be met primarily with the Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP). Highly efficient condensing gas-fired boilers serve as backup. This resulted in 70% operational GHG emission savings from a ASHRAE 90.1-2010 App G. baseline 
– Project design achieved 15.4% energy cost savings compared to ASHRAE 90.1-2010 Energy Cost Budget 
– Project achieved 25 points from LEED energy performance credit utilizing GHG emission and source energy savings 

Gilmore Place

Building FunctionMixed-use Highrise: Residential, Office, Retail 
Gross Floor Area302,000 square meters (3,250,000 square feet) 
LocationBurnaby, British Columbia 
ScopeCode compliance energy modeling 
Project DescriptionThe development consists of three residential towers on top of a five-level podium. The smallest of the towers is 43-storeys and the largest is 62-storeys, making it the tallest residential tower in Western Canada. The development also includes seven levels of below-grade parkade. There are over 1,500 residential units across the three towers. Abundant office and retails space has been included on the podium levels. The project includes energy efficient mechanical systems including an ambient loop supplied by air-source heat pumps. The project was initially required to show compliance using the ASHRAE 90.1 2010 ECB method. However, following the City of Burnaby’s adoption of the BC Energy Step Code, the project had to demonstrate it complied with the relevant Step Code requirements.
Value Added– Compliant with BC Energy Step Code (BC Building Code 2018) 
– Optimized initial design to meet compliance and reduce development cost 
– Minimized project cost increases due to a to the requirement for the in-stream application to change compliance paths mid-project.  
– Strategized the optimum design changes to meet updated requirements without having major redesign or significant cost increase
