E-One Moli Energy is building a lithium-ion battery cell manufacturing facility in the province of British Columbia. The $1 billion project is expected to create up to 350 new jobs in B.C.’s green economy.

Stantec, a global leader in industrial architecture and sustainable design and engineering, was selected to provide a full suite of services including planning, architecture, mechanical, electrical, fire suppression, structural, industrial, ICT, civil, geotechnical, and substation engineering, as well as interior design, landscape architecture sustainability consulting, building commissioning, and environmental services.

Powered by B.C.’s clean energy supply, the facility will become the largest factory in Canada for high performance lithium-ion battery cells, producing up to 135 million battery cells each year.

Supporting the transition to cleaner, more efficient energy sources, the lithium-ion battery cells produced will be used to electrify devices used in daily life, including consumer electronics, power tools, medical devices, high-performance vehicles, and aerospace applications.

To support E-One Moli’s corporate mandate for a better and cleaner future, the new facility is designed to target LEED Gold and Net Zero Carbon certification. It will also include a seven-story mass timber office, and research and development component with a fully integrated green roof making it one of the most sustainable industrial buildings in the region.

“We are honored to work with a socially-conscious partner like E-One Moli who shares Stantec’s commitment to reducing global greenhouse and CO2 levels for a cleaner tomorrow,” said Navid Fereidooni, architect and principal for Stantec. “With a substantial investment in efficient energy generation, this transformative manufacturing space will bring opportunity and growth to the people of British Columbia and the Canadian economy. We are thrilled to be playing an important part in bringing this project to life.”
