Juniper at Timber Court is located in the heart of Lynn Valley and offers a collection of Whistler inspired condo residences. This development has two, 6-storey wood framed apartment buildings, set over two levels of parkade featuring 75 rental apartments and 68 condominium style units totaling 143 residential units. The one, two and three-bedroom residences feature granite and timber detailing and are walking distance to an abundance of amenities including the mall, groceries, and restaurants.
Williams Engineering Canada (WEC) supplied mechanical design services for this project which included heating, ventilation, plumbing and fire protection. WEC is also providing Energy Modelling services, as the development is pursuing Built Green Certification. The building heating systems are provided by two central boiler plants. The heating in each unit is a radiant floor system and the domestic hot water is provided by a storage tank generation system with domestic hot water recirculation to ensure hot water is provided at all plumbing fixtures. Corridor ventilation is provided by an air handling unit with a hot water coil located on the roof. Each unit is equipped with a Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) system for continuous ventilation and to assist in achieving the sites energy targets. Plumbing is designed for all residential fixtures, roof and site drainage requirements. A performance specification sprinkler system is designed to meet NFPA-13 requirements and ensure tenants safety.
The development is a welcomed addition to Lynn Valley, as North Vancouver continues to gain popularity for beautiful landscapes, while maintaining downtown accessibility for daily commuters.
