Building Mechanical Design


Edmonton, AB




South Haven Cemetery Facility is a non-denominational City of Edmonton facility, built to meet the growing operational needs of the cemetery that opened originally in 1988. It features a symbolic 13 metre tower designed by Shape Architecture as well as idyllic views of downtown Edmonton in the distance.

The project, spearheaded by Shape Architecture, was intended to provide a place that would resound with the values of Edmontonians and provide them with a peaceful sanctuary during life's more difficult moments.

Clark Engineering was retained for the project in 2014. They completed a building design that featured an energy recovery ventilation unit, a glycol heat reclaim loop, a domestic water cistern system, modulating condensing boilers, and a chiller. The building was a LEED silver accredited building and won a Governor General's Medal in Architecture in 2020.


  • A 37 kW air-cooled chiller
  • A heat reclaim glycol run-around loop
  • An energy recovery ventilation unit
  • A full domestic water controls package regulating the booster pumps, the cistern, and the septic tank
  • Trench fan coil units for sleek integration of heating and cooling
  • Low flow plumbing fixtures

South Haven Cemetery Facility has been in operation since it opened in the summer of 2019.
