Consulting engineers C.F. Crozier & Associates Inc. has unveiled plans to build a new head office in Collingwood. The 26,000 sq. ft., three-storey building will be built by local developer, Nutak Holdings Ltd. and will feature sustainable design with innovative collaboration spaces.
“We are excited to announce a world-class office building that will serve as our national headquarters and showcase excellence in engineering and design in an inspiring, modern workspace,” Crozier founder and CEO Chris Crozier said in a statement. “This new office will support the firm’s continued growth and further expand our longstanding presence in Collingwood, where Crozier was founded in 2004.
“We look forward to working with Nutak Holdings Ltd. in enhancing a progressive work environment for our people and the community.”
The new building will incorporate sustainable and biophilic design elements including a mass timber structure as a nod to Collingwood’s shipbuilding history, green walls, trees, an abundance of natural light, and an expansive atrium featuring a grand staircase to serve as the building’s central hub. Outdoor space will include a rooftop terrace with natural green space that will showcase the firm’s research initiatives including stormwater management and building aeration systems.
Crozier is a practice providing civil, transportation, structural, mechanical, and electrical engineering, landscape architecture, construction and project management.
SvN Architects + Planners Inc. is leading the building design and interior design, co-creating a human-centred design space plan with Loom Creative Inc., consultant for interior design programming.
The new headquarters has a target completion date of fall 2024.
