Studio HuB is Prime Consultant for the design of and construction of a biomass plant that services a middle school in BC. This biomass plant is a unique opportunity to contribute to the school district infrastructure and goal of implementing sustainable and renewable energy throughout the district. The biomass plant is a hybrid installation that can support both wood chips and pellets, and the structure houses a fuel silo, the mechanical plant, electrical room, field house storage and a secured covered outdoor area for student gathering and collaboration. While this small-scale project is utilitarian, we looked at the placement of the building and posed the question: “Can the building be more than just a mechanical enclosure?” The result is an attractive, cost effective project that can simultaneously serve multiple functions and user groups. Rather than hide the industrial technology in an unattractive shell, the biomass plant becomes a teaching tool. The biomass plant building components will be assembled off site, and the full assembly of the structure will be occur in-situ.
