Location: Edmonton, Alberta
Project Value: $60 Million
The Intact Insurance Building is an eleven-storey office building in downtown Edmonton and the first office high-rise in Edmonton to be designated as LEED® Gold and registered with the USGBC.
This project illustrates Architecture | Tkalcic Bengert’s understanding of complex building envelope issues and the innovation required to achieve LEED® certification with existing buildings and existing sites. The project consists of retaining and retrofitting the existing building’s concrete structure and adding additional floor space. High-efficiency mechanical, electrical and glazing systems were key components of the design. With high-performance mechanical fixtures and rainwater collection, it is estimated that this building will save over 750 000 litres of water per year.
Now fully leased, this formerly vacant office building has been rejuvenated and refurbished to offer vibrant, efficient, top-tier office space in Edmonton’s downtown core.
