- The historic Vanier and heritage designated Tabaret buildings are one of the many University of Ottawa projects awarded to AM-TECH over the past 5 years where AM-TECH retained the cultural atmosphere of both buildings while conforming to modern electrical codes across various projects.
AM-TECH was tasked with a fit up of numerous floors in multiple occupied historic Vanier and heritage designated Tabaret Halls buildings. The scope of work included demolition, interior fit-up, branch wiring, commissioning, and distribution upgrades of the electrical and fire alarm systems of the University of Ottawa Vanier and Tabaret buildings. This included advanced technology such as energy efficient LED lighting, lighting control, sound masking systems, communication and data, and wiring.
The Tabaret building is made up of 5 interconnected buildings, each with its own distribution riser and separate fire alarm loops. The building contained large concentrations of asbestos; however, AM-TECH was able to solve room access issues efficiently through thorough coordination with the asbestos mediation contractor. The project touched public access areas, classrooms, and offices with the goal of creating flexible learning spaces for offices, study rooms, and classrooms.
This was the 3rd project awarded consecutively to AM-TECH in the Tabaret Building by the University of Ottawa. The customer is delighted by the work produced by AM-TECH proven by AM-TECH’s continued presence on the University of Ottawa’s projects to this day.
