Red River College – Heavy Equipment Training Centre
The Heavy Equipment Training Centre project included construction of approximately 25,000 square feet of modern classrooms and office space and 20,000 square feet of training space for heavy equipment mechanics. This project was completed in 12 months and will qualify for LEED Silver Certification. The open well geo-thermal heat-pump mechanical system will provide efficient heating and cooling in this modern teaching facility. To meet LEED standards, interior finishes were modest and included polished and exposed concrete floors, exposed hollow core concrete ceilings within classroom spaces and open office spaces. Natural daylight in shop area was maximized throughout with clerestories and the extensive use of windows within the insulated panel exterior wall system.
