Dunn Capital Corporation envisioned a singular transformation of a defunct and vacant building, steps from downtown in Collingwood, Ontario to a triple-A office building. Crozier & Associates was retained in 2010 to complete the structural design for the three storey, 40,000 square foot (GFA) steel frame structure.
Working in concert with the project architect, Montgomery King Architect, and the owner throughout the duration of the project from design selection through to commissioning, Crozier oversaw the progress of the project, proactively responding to and addressing any issues that might impact timelines. Our range of duties spanned pre-construction structural assessment and detailed structural design through to construction management and contract administration.
The building structure evolved as an integrated design of renovation and new construction whereby pre-existing structural elements were assessed for feasibility. The ultimate structure was composed of reinforced concrete foundation and shear walls supporting a steel frame skeleton.
Wrapped with floor to ceiling window expanses which overlook sweeping views of Georgian Bay, marble entrances, and a half storey penthouse fitness room, The HarbourEdge, stands as Collingwood’s premier office building and currently houses Crozier & Associates head offices.
