The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) contracted GHD to execute a significant brownfield redevelopment project as part of the design and construction of an academic campus in uptown Waterloo, Ontario. The property was formerly occupied by a large distillery that operated for over 100 years.

The project included the design and construction of an academic campus on a 1.56 hectare property, which comprised the construction of the CIGI Campus (a three-storey, 114,000 square foot building) and upgrades to Father David Bauer Drive. GHD supported the development of the master plan for the entire project.

A multi-tower high-rise development in downtown Toronto, Canada by Pinnacle International was faced with the challenge of relocating municipal and utility infrastructure, including storm drainage systems associated with the Gardiner Expressway.

GHD investigated the suitability of the existing municipal infrastructure for the development known as Pinnacle Condominium. We determined the extent to which municipal and utility infrastructure needed to be relocated, and prepared servicing drawings for such work for approval by relevant agencies and City departments.

Montréal University Health

GHD provided a variety of services for the construction of a world-class hospital on the site of the existing St-Luc Hospital as well as on the adjacent plot of land to the south. The main building of the hospital consists of 22 floors and five underground levels with a capacity of 772 beds.

The construction of the new hospital building took place in a busy, densely populated area. We were able to complete deep excavations in a complex geological context with a high water table on a site adjacent to the existing hospital and an underground metro network, both of which remained in operation.
