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!

 

 

 

 

The 27th Energia Contest recognizes Pageau Morel!

The 27th Energia Contest recognizes excellence in Quebecois achievements and celebrates local genius in matters of energy efficiency in categories related to building, technological innovations, industrial processes and manufacturing, transportation, integrated design and greenhouse gas emissions reduction.

Pageau Morel was recognized as the electrical and mechanical engineering firm on the design team of MEC’s Head Office, which was designed using an integrated design process involving all consultants from the beginning of the design process. The goal was to achieve the highest degree of energy efficiency possible and to have the least negative impact on the environment.

Congratulations to all the winners!

“Le concours Énergia reconnait l’excellence des réalisations québécoises et célèbre le génie d’ici en matière d’efficacité énergétique dans des catégories touchant le bâtiment, les innovations technologiques, les procédés industriels ou manufacturiers, le transport, la gestion intégrée et la réduction de l’émission de gaz à effet de serre…

…Le siège social Mountain Equipment Co-op a été réalisé en conception intégrée, c’est-à-dire en réunissant dès le début tous les intervenants du projet. Le but était d’atteindre la meilleure efficacité énergétique possible et d’avoir le moins d’impacts négatifs sur l’environnement.”
