Manitoba Hydro Service Centre – Ashern
The new Manitoba Hydro Service Centre in Ashern houses a combination of office and garage/equipment storage space. Features of the office space include a winter garden and open office areas with natural daylight and individual climate control of workspaces. The garage has in-floor radiant heat and maximizes user convenience by featuring a drive-through door system. Highly efficient envelope assemblies and automated mechanical/electrical systems, including geothermal heat-pump technology, provide immediate value and performance, as well as continued operational efficiencies for years to come. Exterior work consisted of approximately five acres of site development to serve both visitors and staff. Parking and equipment storage areas are a combined paved and granular surface, the grounds are fully landscaped, and bio-swale has been integrated to treat grey water.
