GFL Environmental Facility (formerly Johnson Waste Management)
Value engineering practices were applied by Ernst Hansch Construction Ltd. to design and construct a new 28,100 sq. ft. office, workshop, washbay and parking garage at 195 Discovery Place, formerly owned by Johnson Waste Management Ltd.
The 6,600 sq. ft. office incorporated a reception, boardroom and open concept office area with driver dispatch, shower, locker and lunch room facilities, all geothermally heated.
The 21,500 sq. ft. pre-engineered building provided 7 service bays with in-floor heating, a mezzanine storage area along with 14 heated parking bays and 2 washbays conventionally heated and ventilated.
The building exterior includes a large office parking lot with well presented landscaped areas, semi structural concrete aprons with large asphalt truck access and turning areas as well a large gravel storage and laydown area to the east of the building for waste bin storage.
