The facility was separated into two distinct parts: the Brampton Transit Administrative Office and Dispatch Centre and the Storage and Maintenance Garage. The new facility features parking to accommodate 300 cars and a delivery dock, and is equipped with an emergency diesel generator and electrical transformers.

“This project was completed in a timely, professional and supportive manner. Aquicon Construction brought their vast experience and knowledge to the project and consistently strived to achieve the schedule and design goals.”
