MMP Architects’ Steinbach Civic Centre renovation and expansion project is well underway in Steinbach, Manitoba. Together with Tower Engineering Group and KNH Sawatzky & Associates, the team developed the Contract Documents required for the expansion of the 1964 heritage building located at 225 Reimer Avenue.
Ensuring that the Architectural details were sensitive to the historical building, while still meeting current Manitoba Building Codes and the National Energy Code, was crucial to the success of this project. Details of note include the following:
- Mimicking the existing smooth cut tyndall stone sill and anodized aluminum cladding details
- Repurposing the original exterior tyndall stone wall as an interior feature wall
- Carrying the existing natural maple finish found in the Gallery space to the millwork in the new boardroom, basement conference rooms, and mayor’s office
- Retaining the existing clerestory windows to bring natural light and views into the workspace
The addition of the bright, welcoming space will help ensure that the Steinbach Civic Centre remains a significant asset for the community for many years to come. The anticipated construction completion date of the renovation and expansion project is May 2017. Please stay tuned for final project completion photos in the coming weeks.
