AM-TECH brought Ottawa to life with a world-class attraction that blends modern amenities, heritage buildings, parks, and arenas in the city’s biggest entertainment complex.
Lansdowne Park (now TD Place Stadium) was the largest construction project in Ottawa at the time, with a completion date that could not be missed. Ottawa’s professional football team, the Redblacks, were scheduled to return to Ottawa and play at Lansdowne on live TV. Project delays were not an option. AM-TECH’s diligence and timeliness ensured this iconic project was completed on time.
Lansdowne stands as a landmark multi-use event facility. AM-TECH’s scope in the project included new construction of the south side stands, a complete renovation of the north stands, the construction of the massive underground parking lot, along with the revitalization and modernization of heritage buildings.
Beyond installing updated electrical power and distribution systems, lighting and Fire Alarm, AM- TECH implemented a comprehensive stadium wide building automation system (BAS) which was connected throughout the property. AM-TECH also coordinated with Ottawa Hydro to install a private new high voltage loop, substation and electrical rooms around the entire facility, distributing power to all buildings on the property as well as the parking garage.
In the north stands, AM-TECH refurbished all existing electrical rooms including panels, transformers, wiring and breakers for safety and new requirements. In the south stands, AM-TECH implemented all new distribution including new main switchgear, panels, MCCs, transformers and disconnect breakers. The parking garage is the largest single story garage in all of Eastern Ontario. It lies underneath 12 condos and commercial areas on the property, and provides private and public parking to thousands of visitors of residential, commercial and sport facilities.
AM-TECH was proud to complete the project on time, allowing for the first football game to be hosted in Ottawa in over 10 years, bringing life to back to the Lansdowne area and uniting the city behind the Ottawa Redblacks.
