Lakehead Region Conservation Authority - New Office Facility

Due to the excessive costs required to implement required upgrades to their current facility, H. Bradford Green Architect Inc. (HBG) was retained by the Lakehead Region Conservation Authority (LRCA) to develop the design for their proposed new office facility to be located at 1065 Fort William Road between the Neebing River and the Neebing-McIntyre Floodway.

The proposed design is for a two-storey building with a detached garage. The main floor will consist of the board room, multi-purpose room, kitchen, gift shop, reception, public washrooms and service rooms and the partial second floor will consist of office space, lunch room, file storage, LAN room and staff washrooms.

The prime interior architectural feature will be the central display area where the main entrance corridor and rear exit corridor meet. Interior access to all main floor amenities flows from this central area, which will feature a water display at its center.

The prime features of the exterior design are the twin stair towers on either side of the main entrance and the arched rooflines. The towers will be finished with stone veneer and have clerestorey glazing on three sides, which will provide a high level of natural day lighting into the stairwells. The most prominent feature of the towers will be the 2.44 m wide x 6.1 m high art displays, which will be designed and fabricated by local artists to reflect the mandate and objectives of the LRCA. The lower portions of the displays will have a scale and level of detail, which can be appreciated by pedestrians approaching the building entrance while the upper portions will offer a scale and level of detail appreciable to pedestrian and vehicular traffic at the street. The arched roof will be finished with prefinished metal standing seam roof panels.
