RECL was the Construction Manager, acting on behalf of Ottawa Train Yards J.V. Ltd., for 395 Terminal Avenue, a new Lease Accommodation for Public Works and Government Services Canada. The site plan was designed to optimize the efficient use of this long and narrow property. The eight storey, 28,177m2 commercial office building form is oriented east-west to accentuate north and south views and to best access natural light. The building envelope was finished in a high quality curtainwall system to reduce thermal loss and solar gain while providing generous quantities of natural light. All areas of the leased premises are within 12m of an exterior window. The parking lot and outdoor amenity areas incorporate soft and hard landscaping. The project received a LEED Gold designation.
