Waterloo, ON | Owner: Wilfrid Laurier University
This project began with demolition of a previous one-storey concrete block building at 65 Lodge Street in Waterloo, and the construction of a new two-storey, 14,000 square foot science reasearch facility. The project includes special design features to replicate arctic climate and includes tank reservoirs, testing facilities, etc. Mid-way through the installation of the building structure, a decision was made to add a third-storey greenhouse to the building. This added the challenges of re-engineering, reinforcing and design changes to accomodate access and services.
