Centre for Cold Regions and Water Science

 

October 2013

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 research 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 accommodate access and services.
