Located in the heart of Vancouver, 4000 Main Street is a mixed-use four storey development with ground floor retail units and residential apartment and townhome units above. The building consists of approximately 7,800 ft2 of retail space, and 39 residential units on the remaining 3 floors. The building is located in an excellent area surrounded by two major bus routes, numerous retailers, restaurants and various amenities.
Williams Engineering Canada (WEC) provided mechanical schematic design, design development and complete mechanical permit and construction documents for the heating, ventilation, and plumbing design. The building residential mechanical systems consist of electric baseboard heat; gas fired high efficiency domestic hot water boiler plant and acoustically lined corridor ventilation transfer intakes with time-clock controlled bathroom fans for ventilation. The level 1 commercial mechanical is designed for base building requirements including DX split system heat pumps for heating and cooling and future plumbing connections for each commercial retail unit (CRU).
This building is a great addition to an ever growing neighborhood. Its affordability and convenience make it a welcome addition to the Vancouver skyline. WEC is pleased to have been a part of this development.
