Travino – Royal Oak
The Travino development located in Royal Oak consists of five individual mixed use commercial and residential buildings situation above a common underground parking structure. The development includes wide use of solar domestic hot water, on-site storm water treatment and energy efficient variable refrigerant flow heating and cooling systems. Avalon has designed the mechanical, plumbing and fire suppression systems for the first two phases of construction, including approximately 120 residential suites, the parkade and a large portion of commercial space. We are currently working on the design for the third phase.

The facility is home to CanAssist, the Vikes and contains more than 190,000 square feet of floor space, a 2,100 seat gymnasium, extensive fitness and sports areas and a 16 metre climbing wall. Our role in the project was providing a complete fire suppression system design.
