Construction Begins on TSH Designed
Brampton Older Adults Centre
has just started on the $1.6 million dollar Brampton
Older Adults Centre located on McLaughlin Drive in Brampton.
The 14,000 square foot building was
originally designed and constructed as a cafeteria and
commercial kitchen for what used to be the Ontario Provincial
Police training college. Recently the building and site
became part of the City of Brampton with the building
being renovated into a new and up-to-date consolidated
facility for older adult recreation programs.
TSH was awarded the contract for design
and construction services in the spring of 2004. Project
architect Laurence Cudlip, OAA, has been overseeing
the project since inception and has been working with
Project Manager Mike Ferraro at the City of Brampton
to bring this project to realization.
The renovation includes the complete
gutting and redesign of the building interior including
a new 3,000 square foot auditorium, craft and activity
rooms, library, beauty salon, computer rooms, dance/aerobics
studio, offices and a large kitchen/lounge.
This building is one of several existing
buildings being renovated by the City with the long-term
goal of providing improved mulitfacility uses for Brampton
The construction contract was awarded
to Brown Daniels Associates of Toronto who are now on-site
and proceeding with the demolition. Construction is
expected to continue through the winter and spring with
occupancy slated for mid-May 2005.
