Site Tour | The Exchange
May 23, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm$80
Join us on Tuesday, May 23rd for a site tour of The Exchange project in downtown Vancouver!
The Exchange office tower is a complex mix of new and old construction, built on a heritage building originally completed in 1929.
The new office tower will be a total of 372,000 square feet with 31 floors of AAA office space and seven levels of underground parking plus a spacious, elegant five storey lobby. The new concrete structure is clad in customized curtain wall with 18-inch deep vertical mullions, giving the building’s facade a pin-striped look, and includes triple glazing with varying frit patterns and solar shading. Innovations include metal radiant ceiling panels for highly efficient hydronic heating and cooling and the latest LED lighting technology.
The project is targeting LEED Platinum. The new design conserves the best of the old structure — while bringing standards of sustainability, efficiency and comfort into the 21st century.
Please note: Full personal protective equipment, including CSA approved safety boots, hard hat, high visibility vest and safety glasses are required in order to attend the tour. Anyone not in possession of these items will not be permitted to walk the site.
