Fraser Regional Correctional Centre Electric Vehicle Charging Stations.

Fraser Regional Correctional Centre – EV Charging Stations

  • 6 Charging Heads
  • 3 2P40A Circuits
  • 2 Underground Concrete Vaults

Projects / Institutional

Project info

Looking to modernize, Fraser Regional Correctional Centre (FRCC) in Maple Ridge commissioned our team to install EV charging stations at their facility–which was built in 1990.

As the general contractor, we collaborated with several sub-trades (civil, coring, etc.) and coordinated the required permits and security clearances to break ground at the facility. We also assisted in the electric vehicle (EV) charging station design alterations based on usage site condition requirements before the project began.

To complete the installation, our team: verified capacity in distribution (using existing metering) for three new load-sharing FLO Core+ EV charging units; routed three new 2P40A circuits via new underground conduit; installed two underground concrete vaults; routed and installed a lighting circuit to new lighting bollards; routed conduit and installed FLO network gateway; and verified the lighting control integration (with existing controls) and commissioned six charging heads with FRCC and FLO.

CFB Firehall Emergency Response Centre Exterior

CFB Fire Hall & Emergency Response Centre

  • 86,000 Square Feet
  • 760 Light Fixtures
  • 50+ Intrusion Alarm Devices

Projects / Institutional

Project info

The Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Fire Hall and Emergency Response Centre is a critical piece of infrastructure for the Canadian Armed Forces. As emergency responsibilities have become increasingly complex and new fire trucks are larger in size, a new building was essential. 

The new three-storey, 40,000 square-foot LEED® Silver-rated facility replaced the 55-year-old fire hall within CFB Esquimalt. Unlike other fire halls, this new facility is unique due to its two services—a fire hall and a base command post.

We provided electrical and technology solutions, including electrical distribution, backup power, lighting, fire alarm, security, building controls, and audio visual. While it was a challenge to incorporate the specialized equipment required for this unique facility, we were able to collaborate with the client to secure all materials and installation within the project schedule.

Public Works and Government Services Canada Photovoltaic Solar Panel Systems Rooftop

PWGSC Photovoltaic Systems

Projects / Institutional

Project info

The goal of this project was to supply and install photovoltaic panel systems (solar panels) at three separate Public Works and Government Services Canada locations to supplement their incoming power with clean solar energy. As the general contractor, we supplied and installed photovoltaic panels at the following locations:

  • Canadian Coast Guard – Richmond, BC
  • Institute of Ocean Sciences – Sidney, BC
  • Pacific Biological Station – Nanaimo, BC

The customer required each system to be integrated into the existing electrical system, without power disruptions. 

A challenge we faced during this project was that the Sidney system was larger than the maximum size allowed by BC Hydro for their Net Metering program. Our team worked directly with BC Hydro to develop a method for connecting systems of this size through a load offset stream to demonstrate that the system impact on the grid was manageable. 

We also committed to environmental and sustainability practices during this project by safely disposing contaminated materials, relocating 18 trees, and protecting a heron habitat.
