The Garry W. Morden Centre is a 60,000 square foot facility located in Mississauga on a 37 acre parcel of land. Awarded LEED® Silver certification, this project features a major complex of buildings on one site. The main facility is a teaching and training facility as well as a maintenance facility. The main building encompasses a major mechanical maintenance facility for Mississauga Fire, in addition to training offices, classrooms, a cafeteria, meeting rooms and seminar spaces. Parts of the complex are used as a DND armoury, IT training facilities, and a computer back-up facility for the City of Mississauga.
