395 & 405 Terminal Avenue | Ottawa, Ontario
Client: The Ottawa Train Yards Inc.
Completed on time and under budget in 2013, 395 Terminal Avenue is a 270,000 square foot eight-storey office building designed to accommodate the Canada Revenue Agency. The narrow form of the building evolved to provide universal access to daylight and addresses workplace comfort and productivity. This LEED Gold building incorporates contemporary sustainable standards such as an energy-efficient building envelope and building assemblies contrived for longevity. It is the first office building to be built within the Ottawa Train Yards office campus, whose development potential is one million square feet. (2013)
The second office building 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)
