Erindale GO Station Project and Parking Structure, Mississauga, ON
Acting as Prime Consultants, RJC have teamed with Kenaidan Contracting to deliver the $62 million Erindale GO Station Project and Parking Structure. The superstructure for the garage includes six levels of post-tensioned, cast-in-place concrete, a feature stair tower and a glass- enclosed pedestrian bridge linking the parking facility to the train platforms.
Located on Rathburn Road West in Mississauga, the renovation of the station site will provide over 1,470 parking spaces within the parking facility and over 500 more surface parking spaces for GO patrons.
The complete project scope includes a:
- new glass-enclosed 5,500 sqft station building;
- 45m long three storey high glass enclosed truss bridge from the parking building over the CP tracks leading to a glass enclosed platform building and enclosure;
- new bus loop;
- reconfigured and new surface parking area; and,
- new 6-level parking structure topped with arrays of solar-electricity generating Photovoltaics covering the roof.
RJC lead a team of consultants and contributed as Structural and LEED Consultants. The glass-enclosed station building, which will house a full-time transit employee, is among the LEED initiatives recommended by RJC that will help contribute to Canada’s first LEED Silver Certified parking structure.
Working with the City of Mississauga in the development of revisions to the surrounding major intersections, RJC’s team helped to connect the increased traffic to and from the station site. Other services have also included structural analysis and minor restoration of the existing pedestrian bridge that crosses Burnhamthorpe Road.
RJC worked co-operatively with the owner and Design Builder to ensure a timely resolution of construction challenges. By implementing the most appropriate solution to improve construction schedule and control project costs, RJC ensured the work progressed in a staged manner to minimize disruptions to Client patrons and services. Construction began in February 2011 and is scheduled for completion in June 2013.
