707 Fifth - Manulife Place


An iconic addition to Calgary's evolving skyline, this 27-storey office tower with a curved glass facade extends gracefully skyward. The building is crowned with a glowing lantern space above the mechanical penthouse, adding further visual interest.

A 30-foot tall lobby leads into a lush winter garden podium and a Plus 15 Skyway walkway with retail amenities. The facility includes five levels of below-grade parking with 400 car stalls and 130 bicycle spaces, 547,000 square feet of office space, a tenant-only fitness centre, and a conference centre.

Smith + Andersen was engaged as the mechanical consultant for the project. Energy efficiency was a priority in the mechanical design, as the team pursued LEED Gold Certification. The project was designed using Building Information Model (BIM) work processes.

The core washroom facilities feature high-end finishes and dual-flush, low-flow fixtures. Heating and cooling are provided by air handling units that feed into fan powered boxes, with heating coils servicing the exterior walls.

A Building Automation System (BAS) centralizes the control of the mechanical systems throughout the facility to improve energy efficiency and occupant comfort.
