May 12, 2016 - 11:30am

Meet in Dublin Crossing Pub, 466 SW Marine Drive, Vancouver (in the Marine Gateway Development)

Marine Gateway Development Building

Presented by Ryan Bragg and Joshua Rudd, Perkins+Will Canada Architects

Marine Gateway development in Vancouver, an 80,000 square meter mixed-use project located on the city's new rapid transit line. Marine Gateway sets a standard for sustainable development associated with mass transit and includes a district energy system, an extensive water resource management plan, high-performance building envelope and shading strategies while incorporating two transit stations.

The building is basically complete with occupancy already awarded. After lunch we will have a brief introduction to the project history and process by Ryan, followed by a group tour through Highstreet. From there we can break into two groups to tour the office (Ryan will start at the lobby, and Joshua will start at Level 18).

Ryan Bragg is the development lead. Previous city-scale projects include the transformation of a complete city block into the Princess Street Campus for Red River College in Winnipeg and the regeneration of Rotherham City Centre in the United Kingdom.

Joshua Rudd is an intermediate designer and recently attained his Certified Passive House Designer designation.

NOTE: PPE is not necessary on this tour.
