The second office building to be built at the Ottawa Train Yards office campus, 405 Terminal Avenue continues the architectural and material expression first explored in its sibling at 395 Terminal Avenue next door. Completed in the early summer of 2017, 405 Terminal Avenue rises to nine storeys in height and comprises 170, 000 sf (15,700 m2) of gross area. Two levels of underground parking garage occupy the entire site creating 176 indoor parking spaces. LEED Gold certification is being targeted through many strategies including leading edge energy efficiencies. For MCROBIE, this project was significant as the firm’s first full BIM coordination with other disciplines and the Constructor. (2017)
Congratulations to McRobie team member Vanessa Bray on successfully completing her NCIDQ exams and certification as an Interior Designer! Good Job Vanessa!
Ottawa offers many examples of existing buildings which have been adapted to serve new purposes. Take the Valcore Ottawa office in Hintonburg, completed by McRobie Architects + Interior Designers earlier this year, as an example. This one-storey brick building underwent major interior and exterior renovations in order to provide the new owners with a contemporary office space. Development strategies which focus on the renewal of existing infrastructure facilitate the sustainable growth of our cities!
