Queensborough Community Centre

Description:

This LEED Gold 13,000 ft² expansion to the existing 15,000 ft² community centre, the 2-level expansion includes fitness centre, childcare centre, library, multi-purpose rooms, and administration facilities. Combined wood and steel construction featuring exposed wood decking, glulam beams, and steel bracing. Sloped roof and 2-storey atrium provide a feeling of open space. The soft soils required a pile-supported raft foundation. We also provided structural engineering services for building envelope remediation of the existing building which suffered from extensive wood rot.
