The Parktown Hotel was originally constructed in 1958 and has had numerous renovations over the years. The latest major renovation added 4 floors to the main portion of the hotel that graces the South Saskatchewan River along the Meewasin Trail.
The exhaust air from the original 3 floors was added to the 4 additional floors to be exhausted out the building at the new roof elevation. The heat from the exhaust air was recovered and used to heat the fresh ventilation air serving the new floors.
The mechanical design features the following:
- Energy efficient Air Handling unit using heat pipe technology.
- Low water fixtures in all rooms.
- Comfortable perimeter heating and cooling with individual controls in each room.
