PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The University of Alberta is renovating Mackenzie Tower and Henday Tower at Lister Hall Residences located at 87 Avenue and 116 Street in the Southwest section of University of Alberta’s North Campus. There are five residence towers: Mackenzie Hall, Henday Hall, Kelsey Hall, Schäffer Hall & Chalifoux Hall currently housing 1,760 students. The buildings were originally completed in the 60’s and have not seen any significant renovations or upgrades since. The building’s interior, including the dormitory rooms, laundry facilities, amenity and social areas will provide living and support spaces crucial to the academic achievement of student engagement and giving the community buildings a face lift. Once the phased construction is completed, the total capacity will increase to 2,200 students.

Cdn. Power Pac’s scope is comprised of the following: Electrical demo of all fixtures, surface mounted conduit, light receptacles and existing infrastructure within all walls, mechanical equipment hook-ups, temporary power support, installation of owner supplied high voltage switchgear, supply and install of generator, fire alarm system, electrical distribution, lighting and lighting controls, photovoltaic panels supply and install and civil works required for primary and secondary transformer feeds.

Mackenzie & Henday Hall Towers have combined roof and wall mounted Solar Energy Systems. The combined size of the system is 116.7 kW DC at Mackenzie and 119.28 kW at Henday. The roof systems are broken up into 3 sub arrays located on the wings of the towers and are a very typical installation for Cdn. Power Pac.
