In mid-2017, the Township of King retained Aquicon Construction to undertake the construction of their new Municipal Administration Centre in King City, Ontario. The scope of the project involved construction of a new 46,300 sf. building over two floors which would consist of administration offices, council chambers, a York Region Police sub-station, and ancillary community spaces. The building’s design incorporated many green initiatives such as geothermal mechanical systems, extensive use of timber throughout the building, and other sustainable site strategies. The building was designed and constructed to meet LEED Silver or Gold level certification.

The chosen site for the new building is bounded by the protected Green Belt natural preserve. The design included several sustainable initiatives including a ground source heat pump system for heating and cooling to reduce energy costs and provide zero greenhouse gas emissions, high-performance building envelope, including high-performance glazing, heat recovery ventilators and variable speed pumps, and high-efficiency LED lighting systems utilizing time-of-day controls, daylight sensors and occupancy sensors.

The architect’s design incorporated several environmentally sustainable features such as extensive timber elements, permeable pavers that reduce water quantity and greatly improve water quality flowing to the adjacent wetlands, and a series of new nature trails around the extensive site.
