Halton Hills, Ontario
This bottling plant, delivered via the Design-Build method by First Gulf Corporation for Fernbrook Springs was located on a 4.75 acre site backing onto Steeles Avenue. Very demanding urban design constraints led to extensive elevation treatment and landscaping on the plant/warehouse component facing Steeles Avenue. This 7,432 m2 facility has 9 truck docks, by-law driven car parking and four prominent water storage tanks.
The two storey office component was formed with white, architectural precast concrete panels with horizontal reveals and highly reflective, blue, vertical butt glazing. The main warehouse/plant was clad with repainted white stucco embossed insulated (freezer) panels enhanced with large areas of glazing.
