MEC’s new Head Office and Flagship – Vancouver

Proscenium’s Hugh Cochlin and Ben Nielsen recently led sold-out hard hat tours of MEC’s new Head Office and Flagship at 2nd & Quebec. Currently under construction, this project was designed under our  sustainability agenda and using innovative technology.

This LEED Platinum Certified office building is designed to be 55% more energy efficient than a conventional building of A similar size.

 

The Head Office and Flagship Store will open later this year and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

 

 

 

 

Pipe Shop Phase II

Early this year, the City of North Vancouver commissioned the second phase of the Pipe Shop. Primarily a building systems scope comprising a new HVAC system, complete with AC to condition the space, along with new lighting and controls –  the Pipe Shop will soon be a comfortable space for event goers.

 

There are only two architectural elements in this phase, but they will have a dramatic impact on the space. Acoustic panels will fasten to the ceiling to reduce the resonance of the room and an architecturally unique stair will provide access to a future lounge space in the mezzanine. In the interim, the mezzanine will be for staff access only.
