George Brown College - New Athletic Centre

We designed a brand new state-of-the-art fitness facility for George Brown College on top of the existing roof of a heritage building. Based on the architectural layout, our design formed an L shape by utilizing unclaimed penthouse space. Due to the stunning city views offered by the venue, we used no vertical bracings, opting instead for a cable system. The exterior masonry wall that was to support the new structure was in deteriorating condition, so we employed special stainless steel “Cintec” anchors that allowed us to solidify the existing brick walls and to support the new steel columns for the athletic centre.
