Meadows Community Recreation Centre & Library Receives LEED® Silver Certification

December 21, 2016

Williams Engineering Canada is proud to announce the Meadows Community Recreation Centre and Library in Edmonton, Alberta, has achieved LEED® Silver Certification!

The Meadows Community Recreation Centre is the city’s newest LEED® certified facility and features an aquatic complex, a two-level fitness centre with an indoor track, a gymnasium, multipurpose rooms for community use, two NHL-sized ice arenas with seating, outdoor sports fields and 1400-square-metre space for the Edmonton Public Library. It was essential that this large multipurpose facility was designed as a green building, utilizing innovative technology to reduce waste, conserve energy and decrease water consumption.

Williams Engineering Canada provided mechanical, electrical and civil consulting engineering services for the City of Edmonton at the Meadows Community Recreation Centre and Library. It was important that the design incorporate the City of Edmonton’s vision of creating a family-friendly environment for a variety of activities as well as meet LEED® certified qualifications. Sustainable features such as the energy-efficient mechanical system, raised floor system with displacement ventilation and ice storage system for the ice rink met additional building requirements allowing the facility to conserve and recycle utility consumption. Utilizing daylight harvesting techniques and digital lighting control systems for exterior and specialty accent lighting use also contributes to energy conservation. You can see a full range of the energy and environmentally-friendly features of the Meadows Community Recreation Centre and Library here.

We are proud to have been a part of the team that contributed to the LEED® Silver Certification and are excited to continue working with the City of Edmonton on projects that are designed, constructed and operate with the betterment of community and sustainability in mind!
