The RCMP Curling Club is a one-storey arena type building located at 115 St. Laurent Boulevard in Ottawa with a building area of approximately 17,200ft2. The building includes a curling arena and gathering spaces.

The mechanical scope of work included the replacement of the refrigeration system’s compressor, brine circulation pump, outdoor condenser and associated piping in the new mechanical room and their integration into the existing system. It also included the removal of existing mechanical systems and redundant piping, provision of new ductless air conditioning equipment and new heating equipment such as baseboard, force flow and unit heaters. The electrical scope of work consisted of the design of new interior and exterior lighting and emergency lighting and provision of a new distribution panel for the refrigeration system. Jp2g also provided structural engineering services for the equipment room expansion.
