Crozier has provided civil engineering services to design a variety of institutional development projects across Ontario. We understand the importance of high quality plans that accommodate future activities of the site which benefit the community as a whole. You need engineering consultants whose first priority is to develop a solution that respects and enhances your vision.
Our clients choose to work with us because they know we understand the unique challenges posed by large scale institutional projects, such as the need to minimize disruptions to students, patrons, or staff. We aim to provide our services while allowing facilities to remain open to the public during expansions or renovations.
We pride ourselves on developing a strong working relationship with our clients and consulting team members. Our leadership team has worked with municipalities across Ontario for decades, and cultivated relationships with key personnel at City, Town, and Conservation Authority departments. This means we’re capable and committed to ensuring effective coordination with the project team, and timely completion of engineering tasks.
Our portfolio of Institutional work includes:
CONNESTOGA COLLEGE RECREATION CENTRE (City of Waterloo) – The Conestoga College Student Recreation Centre project aimed at transforming the 36-year-old Doon Campus athletic facility into a dynamic hub of student life, activity, and wellness. The plan consisted of a 27,500 sq. ft. renovation and a 25,000 sq. ft. expansion. Crozier designed private road grading, civil services, rooftop controls, and incorporated Low Impact Development (LID) principles, including infiltration galleries to maintain the existing drainage. The redesign updated the gym and reused the arena as a new triple-gym and track, with a large student commons and classrooms at the second-level concourse.
MCMASTER UNIVERSITY STUDENT ACTIVITY & FITNESS EXPANSION (City of Hamilton) – The objective of the expansion and renovation to McMaster University’s David Braley Athletic Centre and Ivor Wynne Centre was to enhance academic and student life experiences. The project added 80,000 sq. ft. of fitness and activity space with an additional 20,000 sq. ft. of renovated fitness space. Crozier provided civil site servicing for the expansion, which included stormwater management and grading of the new exterior amenity space.
RYERSON UNIVERISTY MASTER PLAN UPDATE (City of Toronto) – This update included assurance that future campus development will support the University’s mission of their academic growth plan. It also ensured campus space planning, design, and delivery are inclusive and community focused and rooted in enhancing the student experience. Crozier reviewed the existing state of assets, municipal servicing and transportation infrastructure and their expansion potential. We worked with the University Board, alumni, student groups and other subconsultants to identify the Master Plan goals and prepared a detailed report on the municipal servicing and transportation engineering recommendations on existing and proposed infrastructure.
