Construction Begins on TSH Designed Brampton Older Adults Centre

Construction 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 residents.

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.
