University of Manitoba – Pembina Hall

The sparkling 120,000 sf facility houses 360 single units with private washrooms. The clear span construction will provide residents with an amazing view of the Red River. With no time in the schedule for delays or disruptions, Ambassador Mechanical worked alongside other contractors to deliver this contemporary, urban high rise building. The varying solar load on the building was a challenge solved with distributed heat pumps which are used to cool the sunny face while heating the shaded side. The hook-up to the campus heat recovery infrastructure also allows for minimal energy input into the building on an annual basis which makes for great savings.
