PAX Building: Maderra provided Mechanical and Electrical Engineering and Design services for the design of Cougar Helicopter’s PAX building. The building is comprised of two levels with a total of approximately 51,000 ft2. The first floor design is similar to an airport with an arrivals and departures area for passengers traveling on Cougar’s helicopters to the oilfields located off the coast of Newfoundland. The first floor includes a seating area for departures, security screening, flight briefing, and baggage handling. The second floor of the PAX building is strictly for Cougar personnel and is made up of office space, boardrooms, training classrooms, lounge/kitchen area and an operations flight deck. The design included multiple systems, including Variable Air Volume (VAV) ventilation system, plumbing, digital controls, power, fire alarm, lighting, back-up diesel generator, card access and public address system.
Hangar Facility: Maderra provided Mechanical and Electrical Engineering and Design services for the design of Cougar Helicopter’s 100,000 ft2 Helicopter Hangar. The building consists of two (2) large helicopter hangar bays, each designed to accommodate five (5) helicopters, separated by a 10,000 ft2 storage, maintenance, and office area. The helicopter bays were complete with overhead cranes, 400Hz in-ground power/maintenance pits, in-floor radiant heating, electric boilers, gas detection and ventilation system, waste oil distribution, back-up diesel generation system, compressed air system, and hydronic snow/ice melt system.
In addition to the buildings, Maderra designed the parking lot lighting layout for the facility.
Maderra worked closely with other consultants, vendors, contractors, and Cougar personnel to ensure project schedule and to react to the project’s dynamic scope of work.
