Dunn Capital Corporation envisioned an extraordinary transformation from defunct and vacant building to a premier office space overlooking Georgian Bay. Crozier & Associates was retained in 2010 to complete the structural design for the three storey, 40,000 square foot (GFA) steel frame structure, just steps from downtown Collingwood.
Working with Montgomery King Architect and Dunn Capital throughout the duration of the project, Crozier oversaw the progress of the project, addressing any issues that might impact timelines. Duties spanned pre-construction structural assessment and detailed structural design through to construction management and contract administration.
The building structure was an integrated design of renovation and new construction whereby pre-existing structural elements were assessed for feasibility. The ultimate structure was composed of a reinforced concrete foundation and shear walls supporting a steel frame skeleton.
Wrapped with floor to ceiling window expanses which overlook sweeping views of Georgian Bay, marble entrances, and a half storey penthouse fitness room, The HarbourEdge stands as Collingwood’s premier office building and currently houses Crozier & Associates head office.
