Owner: Parks Canada

Location: Gros Morne, NL

Project Close: November 16, 2021

CANSnet ID: NL21-1077

About the project:

The required work on this project is for complete construction services for significant demolition of the existing Visitor Reception Centre building (160 m2) and the re-construction, renovation, and planned expansion for a revised total 1,125 m2 building.

The existing parking lot will be expanded to increase capacity and to provide for bus drop off zones, RV parking, and new EV charging stations. A concrete and stone plaza with new interpretive elements will be featured at the front of the building and new wood decks at the rear.

The exterior envelope of the new VRC building will be insulated wood frame construction with an incorporated vaulted steel-framed lobby and public passageway. The building envelope will include a new metal roofing system and roof-mounted solar panel array, new horizontal siding, and insulated aluminum windows and doors.

The renovated interiors will include a new public foyer with reception and exhibit facilities, a new Lounge and Gift Shop, new accessible and inclusive public washroom facilities, an expanded staff office wing, new interior design finishes, and new central communications and utility spaces. High-efficiency HVAC, electrical, and water systems will be installed to meet the demands of the increased building footprint.

All work to be completed as per drawings and specifications. This project is designed to achieve LEED® v4 Silver certification.
