Site Size:

460,000 ft 2

Description:

When Vancouver hosted the 1986 world’s fair, BC place was built for the event and boasted the title of the world’s largest air supported dome-roof stadium. In 2010, Vancouver hosted the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, so this iconic stadium underwent extensive renovations to prepare. Following the games, BC Place was completely revitalized and reopened as the premier venue for live entertainment and sports in Canada.

Job Description:

When BC Place was first constructed, ESC installed some of the first Delta Controls products in the facility. In preparation for the 2010 Winter Olympics, ESC was responsible for upgrading and modernizing the now outdated control system. The upgrades to the stadium included a complete overhaul of the HVAC and DDC system: this consisted of over 4600 DDC points and 303 different DDC panels. ESC also installed a completely new exhaust system for both common areas and concessions, a complete lighting retrofit, dozens of new heat pumps, hundreds of radiant panels, and an infrared field temperature monitoring system.

Results:

Updating and modernizing the BMS system ensured that previously isolated systems could then be monitored and controlled from a single interface and the level of control meant that every area of the building could be scheduled and controlled independently. The stadium’s upgrades also allowed for natural ventilation by using real-time wind speed, direction, and rain detection weather sensors.
