Project info

Clayton Community Centre has been an incredible addition to community life in Surrey, BC. With music and recording studios, a rehearsal hall, gymnasium, fitness centre, and library, this unique facility was created to promote arts and culture in the community. At completion, this impressive building was the first community centre to achieve Passive House certification in North America, and is Canada’s largest Passive House facility to date. 

With the goal of reducing the building’s carbon footprint and meeting the high performance and comfort levels of the Passive House standard, this sustainable new build project was an exciting opportunity for us to use a wide range of our skills and services. We took on the main electrical scope as well as a full technology scope, including fire alarm and battery backup, lighting, security, structured cabling, and audio visual components. 

For lighting, we installed 1,801 light fixtures including 63 7’x7’x7′ triangle LED lights designed to simulate daylight. Our security scope included access control, intrusion, code blue, and video management system. We installed shielded CAT6a to future-proof the building for increased network speeds, along with a DAS system for emergency response. For audio visual, we installed user device-friendly interfaces and digital reservation displays for each room and high-end speakers throughout the premise.
