Williams Engineering (WE) is thrilled to announce that the Parkland County RCMP Facility has received LEED® Certification!
Located in Spruce Grove, Alberta, the Parkland RCMP Facility houses RCMP officers from Stony Plain and Spruce Grove. With a strong commitment to preserving the peace in Alberta’s communities, the facility provides general investigations, crime reduction units, police dog services and criminal intelligence analysis.
Our innovative team provided mechanical engineering consulting services for this project. Our design incorporated a variety of sustainable elements to achieve LEED certification, including high-efficiency condensing boilers, fan motors and pump motors to minimize energy consumption. Another design strategy implemented demand-controlled ventilation by using variable air volume boxes to reduce over-ventilation during low occupancy periods. Additionally, space zoning is controlled by using fan coils to heat and cool the zones. By utilizing sensors and pre-programmed factors, energy and heat consumptions can be operated to produce cost-savings and reduce energy consumption.
With a new building to accommodate program expansion, officers, and staff at the Parkland RCMP Facility are now able to serve the community’s long-term needs effectively. WE looks forward to working on future RCMP projects and contributing positively to the safety and sustainability of communities in various parts of Canada.
