Distribution Centre - Fifth Line North

Halton Hills, Ontario

This speculative distribution centre was delivered via the Design-Build method by First Gulf Corporation for Sun Life Financial Corporation. Located on a 20 acre site adjacent to Steeles Avenue. The urban design constraints were very demanding leading to an elaborate parking configuration and extensive landscaping berming. This 36,010 m2 facility, designed for a maximum of eight units, was constructed with 38 truck doors and by-law driven car parking.

The office component is formed with white architectural precast concrete with deep, horizontal reveals, highly reflective green vertical butt glazing with clear anodized horizontal mullions, where as the main warehouse component is formed with white ribbed insulated prestressed precast concrete panels with broad smooth bands.
