Challenge

Deliver the client’s requirements for reimagining a facility that must preserve its original intent, a high-level competitive swim training and tournament showcase, and adapt more fully to its new use: community-based recreation and instruction. The popularity with the public has overwhelmed its original capacity. Construction must be completed in as little time as possible, all while delivering to a fixed budget.

Solution

An IPD approach to the project planning, conducting an exhaustive interactive design process with the client, and committing to a budget with key trade partners.

Challenge

Reduce the large carbon footprint of the main indoor pool, which currently represents 10% of the City of Kamloops’ GHG emissions footprint. 

Solution

Energy modelling and analysis at an early stage in the process enabled the team to locate the largest GHG emissions in the facility and make informed design decisions accordingly for mechanical and electrical. The right-sizing of the building envelope allowed for increased budget for high-performance mechanical systems. The IPD approach allowed the team to make targeted design decisions to maximize GHG reductions per project dollar spent.
