Reimagining the Brentwood Town Centre

The Metro Vancouver region wanted to develop high-density, mixed-use communities around key transit stations. To support them in achieving their goal, we engineered the redevelopment of Brentwood Town Centre—a 28-acre retail site in Burnaby, British Columbia.

The project will nearly double the size of the existing shopping center. And not only would we add 500,000 square feet of exterior-oriented urban retail space, our design situated the center around a new, open public plaza. Brentwood also includes new office space, six levels of below-grade parking, and approximately 4,500,000 square feet of high-rise residential space in development.

We served as the architect of record for the commercial work as well as for Residential Towers 1 and 2, and we are the architects and mechanical engineers for Tower 3. We are also providing sustainability and building performance consulting to support the LEED certification targets for the project (LEED core and shell, LEED for new construction, and LEED for neighborhood development), and our Project Technology team contributed a web-based request for information (RFI) dashboard based on the legacy RFI system used on the project.

Our use of Collaboration for Revit, a cloud-based technology from the Autodesk and BIM360 teams, earned this project a spot on CanBIM 2017’s BIM Awards shortlist for best design technology. The project was also honored with a Gold Award and Sustainability Commendation from the ICSC Global Design & Development Awards 2023.
