Misericordia Health Centre Redevelopment

The Misericordia Health Centre Redevelopment – Phase project consisted of demolishing and building a new Health Care Centre.  Wescan provided a new mechanical system that was designed and installed to efficiently utilize a glycol heat reclaim system to capture loss from exhaust fans and air conditioning condensing units.
