60 | J UNE 2019 Mayfair Shopping Centre PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY IVANHOE CAMBRIDGE architectural metal panels, glass store- fronts, EIFS, and architectural precast concrete panels, built off-site and then trucked in. "We also used cast-in-place concrete for some structural compo- nents such as shear walls, pile caps, grade beams, parkade ramps and ver- tical circulation cores, which were completed by PCL," says Enriquez. Construction was facilitated with the help of Surespan Structures Ltd., known for producing large precast and prestressed permanent bridges as well as architectural and structural concrete panels. "We completed the archi- tectural precast facade for Mayfair," says Surespan general manager Matt Delange. "It is hung from the structural precast and we had to design a special steel frame to support it. The 20 panels are each eight by 20 feet, and each weigh about 21,000 pounds." Jarrod Yip, project manager at AME Consulting Group Ltd., points out that the expanded part of the mall was designed and built to LEED standards, "so for the mechanics we used ASHRAE as a baseline. "We chose stand-alone air han- dling units for each tenant space – with the largest tenant, Indigo, having three such units. We tied in the com- mon areas to an existing condenser water and heat pump system and large rooftop air-handling unit, both of which were adjusted to accommo- date the increased people traffic of the expanded mall. We also ensured that our refrigerants would be environmen- tally friendly, hence the use of R410A." As of May, the project was finished, and only three units remained to be leased. "Decades from now this site will become a mixed-use town centre, and we are prepared for that to a degree by in-filling the old surface parking lot," says Silvera. "But for now, Mayfair will continue to be an extremely popular shopping hub. This was a great experi- ence for us, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome."
