he core premise of these concepts is based on creating a workplace that ensures occupant comfort, accessibility and log term flexibility.
With the success of Honda’s operations reaching unparalleled heights in Canada, the need to enlarge and improve the quality of their administrative headquarters resulted in their decision to abandon their existing location and construct new facilities elsewhere. The development of this new campus will consist of a 138,000 sf 4-storey office building, a 85,000 sf Service Engineering/Training Maintenance Garage, Product Resource Centre and a 226,000 sf Parts Distribution Centre. The new campus will serve as the national administrative and logistics centre for this global corporation. The core premise of these concepts is based on creating a workplace that ensures occupant comfort, accessibility and log term flexibility. This mandate goes beyond planning and functional efficiencies and also includes a concern for environmental quality and the health of the wider environment – thus a LEED silver rating is being targeted for this project.
