Town kicks off construction of North Operations Depot

The Town of Oakville broke ground today to kick off construction of its North Operations Depot. The 41,000 square foot facility will be home to Roads and Works Operations, Parks and Open Space, as well as interim Fire Station #9 to improve services to the communities in north Oakville.

“This new facility will help us continue to provide timely and effective service for all our residents,” said Mayor Rob Burton who was joined for the official sod turning by George Wark, president of G.S. Wark Limited, general contractor for the project, and Eric Czerniak, project manager of IBI Group, architects for the project.

Once complete, the depot located on Neyagawa Boulevard, just north of Oakville’s Sixteen Mile Sports Complex, will be Canada Green Building Council LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Certified. Features include an indoor sand/salt storage building, a garage for town vehicles and equipment, as well as a fire station.

The town’s Roads and Works Operations oversees services such as road maintenance, storm water conveyance, snow clearing, leaf collection, traffic signals, and vehicle maintenance. Parks and Open Space provides services including tree planting and protection, playground and field maintenance, new park development, and forestry services.

The town will initiate construction of the North Operations Depot next week and the facility is expected to be operational in late spring/early summer 2014.
