False Creek Neighbourhood Energy Utility

Vancouver, BC

Located under the south end of Cambie Street Bridge, this innovative energy plant for the City of Vancouver recovers thermal energy from the sewage pump station to provide domestic hot water and space heating to the False Creek Neighbourhood including Olympic Village. Generous glazing and view portals on the building’s facade reveal the technology used in heat recovery. A set of five emission stacks transformed into a hand-like sculpture by Pechet Studio, add a colourful addition to the Vancouver cityscape. This project was completed in 2009.

This project received LEED Gold certification.
