The Westlund office building is located in Langley, British Columbia. It is an approximately 34,200 SF, four-storey office development built over a single level underground parkade. The owner of Westlund Group had a vision to create a bright and beautiful co-workspace with large floor to ceiling windows, wide inviting hallways, a 10,000 SF entrance beaming with natural light, large training room, 80 shared office spaces, six meeting rooms, 16 washrooms and four kitchenettes. Amenities include a café, spa, roof top patio complete with a bar and putting green.
Williams Engineering Canada (WEC) supplied mechanical design services for this project which included heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, plumbing and fire protection. The buildings heating and air-conditioning is provided by a distributed heat pump system with central fluid cooler and boiler plant. Ventilation is provided by central heat recovery make-up air units, which provide tempered air to the return side of each distributed heat pump. The four-story tall central atrium in the building was provided with hot water radiant floor heat and used as a relief path for the building ventilation air.
The base building’s domestic hot water is provided by a combination of central boiler heat exchanger and point-of-use electrical hot water tanks. Plumbing is designed for all base building fixtures, roof and site drainage requirements. Plumbing rough-in services are designed for all base building commercial & retail spaces for the future connection by tenants. A performance specification to NFPA 13 and 14 requirements was provided for the design build sprinkler contractor.
The Westlund office building is a shared area for creative and a diverse variety of business professionals to have space to collaborate and call their own. WEC continues to strive to provide innovative solutions, in order to help elevate and diversify local markets.
