Description:

An iconic building from the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the Richmond Olympic Oval has since evolved to become one of the largest sports complexes in the city of Richmond. The Richmond Olympic Oval is the destination multi-sports complex for the entire lower mainland of B.C and includes two Olympic sized ice rinks, three FIFA regulation indoor soccer fields, an indoor rowing & paddling centre, a climbing wall, and much more. This world-class speed skating venue was the winner of the Institution of Structural Engineers top award for Sports or Leisure.

Job Description:

ESC was asked to work within the specific and strict environmental requirements for a winter Olympic venue, including maintaining a consistent ice temperature using precision and controlled data tracking. Following the games, efficient modifications needed to be made once the building was turned into a multi-sport facility. This included integrating over 543 different components across HVAC, lighting, gas detection, and refrigeration systems, directional control for 354 individual jet nozzles serving the ice level, and 48 lighting controllers in a fiber optic network backbone allowing for an unprecedented level of control. Heat exchangers were installed as well as an indoor air quality system with seven different air-side operational modes.

Results:

The Richmond Olympic Oval achieved a LEED Silver Rating and stands as a reminder of Vancouver’s Olympic success and environmentally sustainable commitment.
