The Brighton at Westerleigh is located in West Abbotsford, British Columbia. This collection of townhomes have been designed to reflect an exterior Tudor-style with contemporary interiors and has the option of either a two or three bedroom suite layout. The Brighton is close to many amenities, including schools, recreation centres, and shopping centres. This particular townhome development also features its own pool, recreation centre, and clubhouse.
Williams Engineering Canada (WEC) provided mechanical schematic design, design development, building permit, and construction documents for heating, ventilation, and plumbing design. The townhomes’ mechanical systems consists of electric baseboard heat, electric hot water tanks and a continuous central re-circulation ventilator (CRV) system that provides ducted ventilation to each bedroom and common area.
“Our goal was to deliver a quality set of mechanical contract documents to our client while meeting their needs and schedules as the project was split up in many phases. The systems were designed with the client’s budget in mind and were discussed at the preliminary design concept stage.” – Derek Hyde, Project Manger
Although there were some unforeseen challenges with the project, our team engaged with Polygon to ensure that the project was a success.
“The greatest challenge faced with the project was the adoption of the new BCBC building code partially through construction and because of the phased schedule the new code had to be implemented into our existing design. This impacted the contract documents since they were already with the AHJ and changes had to be made. To resolve this we clearly communicated the requirements of the new code with our client and came up with the best possible solution to meet code requirements while ensuring their schedule and budget remained intact.” – Derek Hyde, Project Manger
This is the fourth phase of the Westerleigh residential development that WEC has worked on with Polygon. Charming Tudor-style architecture and elegant floor plans make it easy to see why these affordable townhomes are a popular choice in the expanding Fraser Valley.
