Work on the Orillia Public Library and Market Square project included the demolition of the existing library building and parking lot, and the construction of a new library building, parking lot and market square on the existing 2.2 acre lot bounded by Mississauga Street, Andrew Street, Market Street and West Street.

Aquicon was retained to complete the Orillia Opera House project as Construction Manager for the City of Orillia while constructing the Orillia Public Library and Market Square under a stipulated sum contract. This project has been LEED® Silver Certified.

The new library is a 2-storey building and has a gross floor area of 47,000 square feet, including a partial basement. The structure has a concrete frame with a combination of strip footings in the basement and caissons elsewhere. The cladding is a combination of limestone, clay tile and aluminum curtain wall.
