Quinte West Operations Centre and Works Yard

Quinte West, Ontario

2013 - 2017

Typical of many suburban light industrial facilities in that there is a clear distinction between front offices and rear storage and shop space, this municipal operations centre finds its identity in the use of a retaining structure to create a split level site condition from the sloping topography. The upper level works yard is thereby made secure, with public entry through a recessed two-storey lobby which is accessed beneath the cantilevered building volume.

Built for approximately $200 per square foot, this 100,000 square foot building includes offices and staff amenities, a fleet maintenance garage, workshops, indoor vehicle storage and fleet wash facilities.
