This is another Mount Pleasant industrial/office project. It’s designed by Florian Maurer (of Penticton) for Fast+Epp, a noted local firm of structural engineers, (they were involved in the design of Van Dusen Gardens visitor’s centre and the Richmond Oval). The building will have wholesale uses on the main floor and their offices above, including a materials testing lab and a prototype building area.
The construction of the building will be a little different. It will be constructed of prefabricated hybrid steel and lumber panels, with mechanical and electrical systems pre-installed. The whole building, once at grade, could take only four weeks to build, and will feature geothermal heating.
