University of Victoria Student Housing & Dining
Integral Group is providing mechanical engineering consulting and energy modelling services to the new student residence of University of Victoria in addition to a new commercial kitchen, server and dining facility serving the entire campus. New conference spaces and classrooms are also included as part of the development. The new student housing will consist of 780 bedrooms with associated lounge and study spaces split across two buildings with phased construction.
The project is currently at the Schematic Design stage with Integral Group supporting the design team and client by providing information on mechanical system options, infrastructure requirements, space planning, thermal comfort concepts, overheating analysis, Passive House mechanical design guidance, and energy reduction and targets. The project is targeting Passive House and LEED Gold Certification with the first phase slated for completion in 2022.
