Our first project with Pratt Homes was in 2014, when Pratt’s ownership team commissioned Crozier & Associates to provide the structural designs for a midrise wood frame condominium complex in downtown Barrie. Located at Yonge Street and Madelaine Drive, the Yonge Station community is located on one of Barrie’s main corridors, just minutes from Barrie South GO Station. The community is composed of two, four-storey wood frame buildings, each with underground parking garages.
ISM Architects designed the condos, and the Crozier structural team designed the structural engineering plans for both buildings in the development.
Yonge Station’s two condo buildings have a total of 166 units, ranging from 867 to 1158 square feet. The units each have concept designs with balconies or terraces and underground parking. The community plays host to landmark art from internationally renowned artist Ron Baird, creator of Barrie’s famous Spirit Catcher. With a central park, fitness centre and numerous public art installations, Yonge Station was designed as a family centric community in a quickly developing area of Barrie.
When construction of the community began in 2015, Crozier & Associates’ Construction team tendered and administered the contract. Crozier’s engineers monitored the buildings’ progress via frequent site visits and by maintaining consistent and open communication with the builders (Pratt Homes). Home owners moved in between 2016 and 2017, and since then, the Pratt Homes & Crozier relationship has continued to grow.
