AECOM was asked by the City of Mississauga to undertake an analysis of the City’s main transit facility at 975 Central Parkway, with a view to accommodating an expanded transit fleet. The feasibility study included a review of existing facilities and operations, development of strategies, conceptual design of options for expansion, life cycle costing, and evaluation of options. The project includes a number of “green” initiatives including light coloured roofing, partial vegetated roof, and extensive use of heat recovery for the large rooftop heating and makeup air units.
The building meets the City of Mississauga’s standards for barrier-free accessibility, to the degree practical for a facility of this type. The design team worked with the City’s Accessibility subcommittee to ensure that this public building would take a leadership role in barrier free initiatives for industrial facilities.
