Delivered through an IPD project delivery model, the rehabilitation of the 522,000ft2 multi-use building includes major upgrades to the electrical systems and the addition of a 5MW rooftop solar array. The facility remains operational throughout construction.

The electrical systems that were replaced included two 3.0MVA 13.8KV/0.6KV, incoming medium voltage feeders from main substation, dry type indoor substation transformers, medium voltage switches, main-tie-main 600V switchgear, central distribution boards, motor control centres, distribution transformers, branch circuit panel boards, power factor correction units, etc. Arc flash studies and coordination, grounding studies, and harmonic analysis studies were also performed.

In order to meet City of Edmonton’s goal of Net Zero by 2040, several greenhouse gas (GHG) tracking and energy efficiency methods have been incorporated, including the recent addition of a 2.4MW rooftop solar system as part of Phase 1 works. A future phase would add another 2.4MW to achieve the GHG goals.
