TAXATION BUILDING RECAPITALIZATION

The Government of Canada decided to renovate the Taxation Building in conjunction with a major tenant reorganization associated with the refurbishment of the former Galleria Building (Alvin Hamilton Building). The Taxation Building had previously undergone improvement work to the exterior and building envelope but the mechanical systems were past their anticipated life. Building services and systems were inefficient and lacked proper accessibility due to an obsolete floor plan and core configuration. Interior finishes were tired and dated.

The project commenced with an Integrated Design Workshop. Sustainable building initiatives were explored with a goal established to achieve a Certified level under the LEED program. A LEED Application was made at the end of the project and a LEED Silver rating was achieved.

Renovations included a new entrance lobby incorporating Saskatchewan's first machine room-less, energy-efficient elevator, barrier-free washrooms and an efficient services core. Finishes have been replaced throughout the building. Materials were selected with consideration given to recycled content, durability and low VOC levels. Mechanical systems employed energy-saving technology. Water consumption was reduced through the selection of fixtures. Lighting system controls ensured that energy use was reduced through the use of occupancy sensors and use of low-energy ballasts. Full building commissioning was undertaken to ensure that all systems were operating at peak efficiency.
