Crozier worked with Global Architects to design this contemporary stacked back-to-back townhome development consisting of: six, four storey wood frame buildings; 109 residential units; and, 54,610 square feet of underground parking area.
Transformers are typically placed on electrical grounding grids on the ground – because the entire site was a parking garage, the transformer was placed above the garage and wired to the grounding grid below the garage. Crozier assisted with the permit application process for the acceptance of this unique transformer system.
Due to varying ceiling elevations in the underground parking, special attention and internal coordination was required to run mechanical and electrical lines from the street to the electrical room and then to each block of units while maintaining clearance for vehicles. Sub-electrical rooms were implemented to reduce the quantity of electrical conduits and heat tracing was implemented on mechanical lines. The stormwater retention tank was placed in the underground parking area. The suspended parking garage ceiling slab had to be designed for the fire truck, garbage truck and landscaping. There were high loads for a slab that had many elevation changes due to 6 unique townhouse building blocks.
