Extensive experience, strong relationships, and creative thinking helped to bring this rail maintenance facility to completion.
The Whitby Rail Maintenance Facility project aimed to provide complete maintenance services to GO Transit’s existing rolling stock as well as future electric multiple unit trains. As lead design consultant, we worked closely with Metrolinx, Infrastructure Ontario, the builder, and the facility manager to develop a cost-effective design for the life of the facility that meets myriad functional and operational requirements.
Our role included design management, architectural, building engineering, landscape, civil, site, track, transportation, signal, and yard control design services. As part of the design, we considered the current and future needs of the client—sufficient yard tracks were included for the daily storage and maintenance of up to 13 trains (12-car consists) and expandable to 22 in the future. Staff parking for up to 300 employees was also incorporated onto the site.
Serving the Greater Toronto Area region of more than six million people, GO Transit requires efficient, organized facility solutions to keep its service on-track. That’s why the design of its new, 28-hectare facility is so important to so many people.
