A masterful master plan

Pacific Rim National Park Maintenance Compound, Tofino

The project was a new maintenance compound/work yard that would replace and consolidate 3 existing facilities in leased spaces at Pacific Rim National Park near Tofino, Vancouver Island.

We executed a programming and preliminary master plan design. Our goal? Build one combined facility on Parks Canada owned land. The site was adjacent to the existing Parks Canada Administration building that was completed in 2014.

Our team visited the site, interviewed users and worked to understand the current space, their operational  requirements and future requirements.

The program includes many industrial-type maintenance workshops, plus, an exterior storage yard for heavy-duty equipment. It also includes offices, a wood workshop, areas for trail supplies, road supplies, welding shops, a heavy fleet storage area, winter boat/car storage area, a battery charging station and storage for maintenance materials.
