Project Case Studies

  • Algonquin College, Animal Hospital and Teaching Facility

    Ottawa, Ontario

    The 10,000 ft2 facility houses office, teaching, and assembly areas. The building is a single-storey steel frame structure. As a design-build project with a limited budget, an efficient structural system that was carefully coordinated with the mechanical systems was required to maximize ceiling heights within a limited building elevation.

  • University of Ottawa, Heart Institute Education Centre

    Ottawa, Ontario

    Design of a new 12,000 ft2, rooftop expansion and internal renovations to the University of Ottawa’s Heart Institute. The facility included a teaching theatre with state-of-the-are audiovisual equipment. Services included site investigation of existing structures and preparation for major mechanical and electrical renovations, preparation of concept design, structural budget estimates and the preparation of all necessary drawings and specifications for building permit application and tender. Site review services included the review of all submitted shop drawings, periodic site review of the work and certification of the structure upon completion of construction.
