Blackberry Northfield Campus
This project is a Greenfield Development of a 36 acre Technology Park for a local global leader in wireless innovation.
The service infrastructure involves the construction of a fully accessible road system with the necessary services to provide full and reliable support to the facilities. The power transmission is a full dual service network providing the required reliability factor. Fibre optic service is complete as are gas, water and sewer.
Four buildings providing 750,000 s.f. of multi-faceted office and support space have been completed. To accommodate the densification of the site 3 parking structures have been constructed adding 1450 vehicle spaces.
To support the fast track project delivery the building structures are structural steel frame with composite metal deck. The distinctive architectural design is maintained by a careful blend of precast, glazed curtain wall and brick veneer.
The facilities incorporate access floor systems to provide full flexibility contributing to a "Plug and Play" environment. The multi-use buildings are all fully supported with suitable levels of redundancy and building systems that are sustainable and adjustable to varied uses.
This project is expected to achieve Certification by the LEED® Canada Green Building Rating System.
