A former seaport terminal was transformed into the new home for the Halifax Farmers Market. The new market operates daily providing twice the vendor space and circulation area as its former location and includes a 3000 sq. ft. rooftop office space.  The facility provides 147 interior vendor spaces, 46 exterior vendor spaces and 5 retail stores.  All interior vendor spaces have access to electricity and half of those have access to hot and cold water. 

M&R Engineering was responsible for mechanical design including HVAC, Plumbing and Fire Protection as well as electrical design including Lighting, Power, Communications and Security and Sustainability Consulting (LEED Point Documentation, Commissioning, Daylight Simulation and Energy Modeling).

Key facts:

  • Geothermal water-to-water heat pumps provide space heating
  • In-floor radiant heating
  • Geothermal water-to-air heat pumps provide cooling in office areas
  • Evacuated tube solar collectors for domestic water and space heating
  • Ventilation is provided by energy recovery ventilators in winter and shoulder seasons
  • Engineered natural ventilation system with automated dampers and windows provides ventilation and cooling in retail areas
  • An IAQ system monitors PM, TVOC, CO2, temperature and humidity
  • Dual flush toilets and waterless urinals
  • Rainwater cistern on second level supplies water to water closets via gravity
  • Occupancy and daylight sensors control lighting
  • A study was performed to evaluate daylighting performance 
  • Roof mounted wind turbines are net metered with the utility
  • Energy modeling indicates 64% energy savings against code with 15% of energy produced by on-site renewable sources
