Port Colborne, Ontario

Port Colborne Operations Centre

Currently under construction, the new Port Colborne Operations Centre is situated on an island in the middle of Welland Canal. The site is only accessible by a draw bridge.  We are leading this unique design that will serve as a new home for Public Works, Parks and Utilities Departments. The new build includes an administration building, operations centre, salt dome, wash bay, vehicle storage yard and materials storage yard.

We use different building materials throughout and our construction techniques add additional interest to the project. The operations centre is a pre-engineered structure, the salt dome is a pre-fabricated tensioned fabric building, both working in tandem with more traditional building techniques and materials.

The project recently tendered on budget. Throughout the process we have provided coordination with the municipality, Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, Region of Niagara and Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority, balancing each’s requirements to ensure the project continues to move forward on schedule.
