St. Joseph 4-12 School (Whitecourt)
This new school, budgeted at $21,894,000.00, was delivered as a design-build for grades 4 through 12 in Whitecourt, Alberta. The project was completed in 2017. The school uses displacement ventilation for cooling and fresh air; building heat is provided by hot water heating to radiant panels from mid-efficient gas-fired boilers. Both enthalpy wheels and core type heat recovery ventilators were employed on the air systems. Occupancy controls and demand controlled ventilation were implemented to save operating costs.
