Parq is one of the largest private hospitality developments in BC. It features two luxury hotels (JW Marriott Parq Vancouver and the Douglas, an Autograph Collection Hotel); eight restaurants and lounges; 60,000 square feet event and meeting space; a 30,000 square feet park; and a casino containing 600 slot machines, 74 table games, poker rooms, and 11 VIP salons designed for private gaming.
We provided electrical construction services for this new build project, which included the installation of interior and exterior luminaires, lighting control systems throughout the six floors of the podium levels, a fire alarm system tied into BC Place, high voltage feeds and all required electrical distribution, and an underfloor duct raceway system for the gaming areas.
For electrical distribution, we provided 4 new generators—2 paralleled at 1.5MW and 2 paralleled at 1.75MW—and 4 unit substations. We also provided conduit infrastructure for all technology, using a number of innovative methods on this new build project including Lean methodology and using 3D modeling and CAD coordination.
