Winnipeg International Airport is a primary gateway for the province of Manitoba and large parts of neighbouring provinces and territories. It is the first airport in Canada to receive LEED rating for its environmentally friendly design and construction. The new international and domestic terminal layout adds substantial value and comfort to a traveller’s experience. Controlled by a Central Utilities Building, an advanced heating and cooling system maximizes overall airport efficiency. As the only commercial international airport within the province, Winnipeg International Airport continues to be a vital hub for transportation in Manitoba. Designed as part of a joint venture engineering project, the mechanical systems include a combination of variable air volume and constant air volume systems with glycol heat recovery on exhaust air systems, waste heat recovery from heat pumps for utilization in low temperature heating water systems, ground source heat rejection for unitary heat pumps and off-peak chillers, and in-slab hydronic radiant floor heating and cooling systems.
