The MNP Tower project involves the addition of a 35 story office and retail tower to the existing heritage building located at 1021 West Hastings Street in the heart of downtown Vancouver, BC. The vision for this $70 million project is to preserve the facility’s façade, with construction integrating an adjacent parking lot with the tower below.
Integral Group is providing mechanical and LEED consulting engineering services for this sustainable mixed used building. Mechanical rooms on each floor are innovatively positioned in complete contact with the outdoor air in order to house the air-cooled heat-recovery pumps and minimize refrigerant piping.
Key design features include air source VRV heat pumps and demand-controlled heat recovery ventilation on every floor, two speed demand-controlled parking ventilation, low flow fixtures, local hot water heating and triple glazing. The project is designed to encompass sustainable low-intensity energy systems and a high level of energy savings. MNP Tower is on track to pursuing LEED Gold Certification.
