Nelson Wong Architect 2005

Building Area: 55,000 sq.ft.

Budget: $15 million

Nelson Wong Architect provided programming, design, contract documents services for this 55,000 sq.ft Police facility. This building is the second prototype model station incorporating Community Based Policing concept with an optimal complement of some 300 police staff and containing a detention centre of 25 cells. Also an important client directive is to reduce annual operating costs by 25% using Green Building Strategies.

Some of the Green Building strategies are:

– using native plants
– capturing prevailing winds
– rain water harvesting by using exposed cisterns to collect roof runoffs, water collected is used to water
plant material located along building façade’s colonnade thru a drip irrigation systems.
– using sun’s energy in conjunction with energy efficient architectural, mechanical and electrical components.

This house incorporates the latest architectural features and green building technologies. The roof will be a light roof. The R Value of the walls and roof will be higher than building code standards with the installation of a HRV. Rainwater will be collected into a cistern for grey water use and solar hot water tanks will also be installed on the roof. The main space of the house is a two storey space with clerestorey windows above for light and ventilation. Also located in this space is a two storey high “Living Wall” which will be tied in with the mechanical system for purifying the return air of the house. The main vertical circulation is a stair wrapping around a glass elevator which connects all levels of the house.
