Scope of Work

Completed: 2017

Owner: Parq Holdings Limited Partnership

Parq is the largest private development in British Columbia. It features two luxury hotels (JW Marriott Parq Vancouver and the Douglas, an Autograph Collection Hotel); eight restaurants and lounges; 60,000-square foot event and meeting space; a 30,000-square-foot park; and a casino that features 600 slot machines, 74 table games, poker rooms, and 11 VIP salons designed for private gaming.

Houle provided electrical services for Parq Resort & Casino. The electrical distribution consisted of 4 new generators – 2 paralleled at 1.5MW and 2 paralleled at 1.75MW – and 4 unit substations. Houle installed interior and exterior luminaires, lighting control system throughout the 6 floors of the podium levels, fire alarm system that tied into BC Place, high voltage feeds and all required distribution, and underfloor duct raceway system for the gaming areas. Houle also provided conduit infrastructure for all technology. Houle utilized a number of innovative methods on this project including lean methodology, equipping key personnel with laptops and tablets, and using 3D-Modeling and CAD coordination.

“Houle’s commitment to quality installation and schedule management was a crucial component to the project’s success. Given the highly accelerated and compressed schedule of the project, the Houle team has worked in a collaborative manner with EllisDon, the Owner and the Consultant team to meet the demanding design and schedule challenges. Furthermore, numerous value engineering initiatives were recommended and implemented with respect to the project budget while maintaining the design intent and quality standards.”
