See AM-TECH’s complete renovation to the recently restored Lansdowne Park Horticulture heritage building where modern technology was utilized to meet electrical codes while preserving the cultural integrity of the interior’s aesthetics.
Located in Ottawa’s Lansdowne Park, the Horticulture Building was erected over nine weeks in 1914 to serve as a venue for the Central Canada Exhibition’s annual horticulture show, replacing an earlier Horticultural Hall built in 1899. Additionally, for 75 years, it was also used as a curling venue during the winter. As an intrinsic piece of Ottawa’s cultural history, it was imperative that AM-TECH took great care in preserving the heritage building’s cultural ambiance while conforming to modern electrical and fire alarm codes.
At the horticultural building, AM-TECH completed a complete electrical renovation to the Horticulture building that was restored and relocated within the Lansdowne Park lot. The project scope included a complete lighting networking and fire alarm renovation. Despite AM-TECH’s utilization of modern technology in this project such as electric heating and security systems connected to a main terminal room, AM-TECH successfully prevented its intrusion to the interior aesthetics, retaining the building’s cultural integrity.
