Pomerleau is leading the project delivery for the University, with its Design-Build team: IBI Group, EXP, MCW Consultant and RDH Building Science.

Passive House Pulse Vancouver – August 18th, 5:30 – 7:00 PM PST 



Attend the highly anticipated tour of the recently completed Passive House and LEED Gold certified Gastown Childcare Centre at 150 Water Street and 151 West Cordova, situated in downtown Vancouver, in a historical neighbourhood that is a mix of commercial and residential buildings.

This project is an innovative response to an intriguing concept proposed by the City of Vancouver. The two 400m2 single-story buildings, located on the roofs of two underused parkades, provide 74 much-needed childcare spaces, accommodating 24 infants/toddlers and 50 preschool-age children.

Adam James was technical lead for the Gastown Child Care project while with Acton Ostry Architects. He will lead the tour and discuss the design and construction of the building. Learn more about the speaker here. 

Please Note: the building is accessible from the public elevator located at 150 Water Street. Please meet outside elevator at top floor level.
