Allan & Jean Millar Recreation Centre


3D Energy was engaged to complete a Detailed Energy Audit (ASHRAE Level 2) on this facility.

As the prime contractor, 3D Energy performed the vast majority of the work including the site visit, energy modeling, analysis, and reporting, with some mechanical & electrical support from our sister company Vital Engineering as needed.

This recreation multiplex located in Whitecourt, AB includes offices, commercial space, lounge, children’s play area, conference facilities, running track, fitness centre, fieldhouse, and an indoor water park. We identified a total of nine ECMs including air handling unit variable frequency drives, pool variable frequency drives, low flow faucets, lighting occupancy sensors, lighting upgrades to LED, and a combined heat & power (cogeneration) unit installation.

The recommended measures would have a simple payback of five years and take the equivalent of 340 cars off the road each year.
