Studio Bell is home to the National Music Centre, a vibrant museum and recording studio in Calgary's East Village. This unique five-story building includes a recording facility, broadcast studio, live music venus and museum all while being a performance hall. By being the first building of its kind in North America, Studio Bell encapsulates over 450 years of Canadian music history through exhibits, performance, artist development and music education. 

 

Klass Mechanical provided over 200 tons of cooling to the National Music Centre in downtown Calgary. Mitsubishi Electric water cooled City Multi units were used to cool restaurants, common spaces, recording studios and offices. Precision cooling systems, using Schneider Electric and Liebert units were used to maintain temperature and humidity control for the multiple exhibits. The project was completed in 2017.

Rogers Place is home to the Edmonton Oilers and is an innovative and energy-efficient stadium with LEED Silver Certification. LEED certification assesses a building's water and energy efficiency, material selection, innovative design and indoor air quality. Since September 2016, Rogers Place has served as Edmonton's venue for sports games, UFC fights, concerts and more. 

 

Klass Mechanical provided over 190 tons of cooling to demarcation, audio, fire command, elevator machine and electrical rooms. Mitsubishi Electric's ductless split City Multi systems allowed for easy installation and configuration flexibility in this project. Additionally, to adhere to LEED certification standards, heat expelled from electrical and machine rooms were recovered to heat the underground garage.

Fort McMurray Airport

Opened in June 2014, the Fort McMurray International Airport's newest terminal is a thing of beauty. The $258-million dollar terminal is at least three times larger than it's older counterpart and features four aircraft bridges and eight aircraft parking stands. The terminal is a one-of-a-kind, environmentally sustainable facility built for the harsh northern climate. 

 

The air terminal building is climate controlled by Mitsubishi Electric double heat recovery water source systems, utilizing state of the art variable refrigerant flow (VRF) technology. These systems provide building comfort conditions by allowing simultaneous heating and cooling operation as required at various locations in the building while at the same time maximizing building energy efficiency. Computerized control and energy management programs optimize the energy recovery process to ensure the least possible energy consumption and minimizing operation costs.

Wyndham Gardens Airport

Exterior Day - Copy.jpg

Opened in October 2015 and located only minutes away from the Calgary International Airport, the Wyndham Hotel has become an uncovered jewel in the city's hospitality scene. The building is highlighted by a complex central climate control system that earned Klass Mechanical Sales the award for City Multi Project of the Year. 

 

The specifications asked for equipment that ran as quietly as possible, due to the hotel's proximity to the airport. After considering PTAC units and ruling them to be too loud, a City Multi VRF system was installed. The feedback since opening from both the customers and staff have been positive, namely that the rooms have been quite comfortable and quiet.
