Guelph VIA Rail Terminal Renovations

Location:

Guelph, Ontario

Owner:

The Corporation of the City of Guelph

Consultant:

Thomas Brown Architects Inc.


Challenge:

  • Complete the historical restoration of the existing transit terminal while maintaining full operation to the vendors (Greyhound, VIA Rail, Metrolinx & City transit)
  • Complete the project in twelve months, within budget

Objective:
The station is a typical early 1900s Canadian transit terminal and was designated a heritage building in 2012 under the Heritage Railway Stations Protection Act. As a result, restoring the exterior of the building to its original construction appearance and design was a top priority for the client, all while keeping the station in full operation for the vendors. For this reason, the project was separated into three phases to accommodate the operations.
