About MCW in Vancouver
Rooted in Vancouver since 1970, MCW's body of work has been an integral
part of the changing Vancouver skyline as well as the larger British
Columbia landscape. Our commitment to managing our clients'
environmental footprint with every "new build" or "asset renewal"
opportunity has resulted in a portfolio of projects that incorporate
truly leading-edge design. We are proud to have made a difference in
our community with many building design 'firsts' that have advanced the
cause of sustainability. These include many of the region's first
earth-energy systems installed in the '70s and '80s, the first major
commercial harbour water cooling system (Canada Place), the largest (in
its time) energy management and renewal program ever undertaken at a
Canadian University (UBC EcoTrek), and the largest Public Housing
energy management and renewal program undertaken in Canada (BC
Housing). MCW is the recipient of numerous recent design awards and
accolades recognizing the firm's achievements in energy efficiency and
customized design solutions. "Our clients look to us to navigate the
risks and rewards of their need for green designs incorporating
advanced low-consumption electrical technologies, large-scale
geothermal applications, active slab technologies, displacement
ventilation and the emerging ability for new building infrastructure to
house embedded energy generation" says Bellamy.
