On December 3rd, King Township celebrated the official grand opening of their municipal office building. The project team gathered alongside Mayor Steve Pellegrini, Township Councilors, CAO Susan Plamondon, Director of Parks, Recreation & Culture Chris Fasciano, and community members for this exciting ceremony.
The Township of King had outgrown its current premises and required additional office space. The new 46,000-sq.ft facility was designed by +VG Architects and built on the site of the demolished Holy Name Elementary school. Surrounded by the beautiful Oakridges Moraine, the new municipal office consists of administration offices, council chambers, and ancillary community spaces (gymnasium) for recreation programs.
The building also includes a 3,000-sq.ft. York Regional Police substation, which is the first in the area. The facility incorporates sustainable design features such as geothermal building automation systems and extensive use of natural light to reduce energy consumption.
Colliers Project Leaders is thrilled to have provided project management services and to have led the project development of this much-needed upgrade in the King community. Working on the project from the start, our team prepared a comprehensive Project Implementation Plan to establish baseline parameters for a budget, schedule, quality, and risk. From there, we led the project team and stakeholders through to the successful completion of the facility within the Township’s budget and timelines.
Congratulations to King Township and all the project partners.
