Two Storey Addition
Project Construction: 2011
Owner: Bell Canada
A two storey addition to an existing masonry and concrete building for Bell Canada, most of which is circa 1960’s-70’s. The addition is a technically demanding 2nd storey extension over an existing ground floor and basement. The facility provides critical telephone and as
such must be in continuous operation. The construction work will proceed to protect the equipment and facilities operation as the upgrades are performed.
Beginning with a feasibility study, Melillo Architects Incorporated evaluated various concepts to provide new equipment space for this existing Bell Canada automated telephone exchange. The
selected option was developed into a complete design addressing various technical criteria including equipment requirements and conformance to NFPA 76. Extensive interaction with Bell authorities resulted in a design that met the requirements of the client while expressing a distinct building identity to meet City development
guidelines for the area.
We worked with Bell Canada to develop numerous options and
scenarios to ultimately determine a prototypical solution that works for both Bell Canada and the end users of the FlexCentre.
