Long Term Care Residence

The greenfield Havelock long term care facility features power redundancy for heating and cooling, allowing the residential facility to remain fully operational in the event that both power and natural gas are unavailable under emergency conditions. 

This 91,000 ft2 greenfield residential facility is a mass timber project, consisting of 128 beds, a 5000 ft2 medical clinic and support spaces, including a kitchen, four dining areas, and communal spaces such as lounges and meeting/activity rooms.

HH Angus is providing mechanical and electrical consulting engineering, as well as lighting design. The mechanical design includes a new hot water heating plant and distribution systems. Rooftop units have been designed with energy recovery ventilators to recover heat from washroom exhaust. A chiller system will provide cooling for the units and boilers will provide the heat. The project is designed to meet CSA Z317.1 standards.

Our design team was challenged to provide suitable fire protection to this mass timber project, equipping the entire attic with fire protection service. In order to avoid excessive heat tracing, a nitrogen dry sprinkler system was used.

The lighting control system has been designed to provide the residence with optimal comfort through the use of daylight harvesting. A mixture of automatic, manual and scheduled controls were specifically designed to allow residents individual control while providing the owner the flexibility to identify areas where energy consumption can be reduced.
