Williams Parkway Operations Centre Phase 1

Brampton, Ontario

2012 - 2015

This new home and public face for the city's public works division is being built in two phases while accommodating full operations on an existing, partially overlapping works yard site. The main building is conceived as a collection of crisp glass and metal volumes linked together by a 500 foot long, two storey wood-lined atrium that gestures to the street with a dramatic cantilevered board room. 

The phase one administrative building, recently completed, contains offices and staff amenities. The phase two works building, due to open in 2017, will house the weather event control centre, muster and change facilities, workshops, a fleet repair and maintenance garage, and extensive storage with covered loading. The second phase also encompasses a works yard with a vehicle wash building, a salt, sand and equipment storage shed, and a fueling centre.
