Blatchford District Energy System

Chandos Construction was awarded this lump sum project based on a combination of price and submitted proposal. The Blatchford Energy Centre #1 is the first of five planned energy centres for the Blatchford subdivision. The Blatchford Redevelopment mandate is to make use of renewable energy for the heating and cooling for all residential and commercial development in the 217-hectare development with a planned 30,000 residents. Energy Centre #1 uses geothermal energy from a large geoexchange field also built by Chandos as part of the project. The energy is then transported through the development via the DESS (District Energy Sharing System). The geo heat exchange field consists of 570 bore holes drilled to a depth of 147m. The boreholes are connected by 12,000m of header piping installed 1.3m below the surface of a storm retention pond. While Energy Centre #1 is an unoccupied mechanical processing building it also forms the corner piece of the future central gathering place for the development. As such it has many different architectural finishes and an eye-catching geometry making this a truly unique building in both function and aesthetics.
