City of Edmonton
JEN COL Construction was tapped by the City of Edmonton to build the Lewis Farms Transit Centre & Park and Ride facility in west Edmonton. The scope of the project included a 297 m2 heated shelter, a 312-stall asphalt parking lot, a 276-stall gravel overflow parking lot and 8,018 m2 of concrete pavement for the bus turn-around.
A special feature of the transit centre is a high-efficiency furnace used in conjunction with radiant tube heaters to create a set temperature of only five degrees Celsius through the winter months reducing costs of heating for the life of the building. The design intent of the building was such that no exposed conduit or ductwork was to be seen. Glazing was also used to allow visibility within the transit centre, thereby increasing security and safety for users.
