Contracted under Black & McDonald Ltd., Aquicon Construction undertook an expansion to the Toronto Transit Commission’s Wilson Complex. Facilities remained occupied and fully operational while construction activities were ongoing on the adjacent expansion. The new expansion consisted of a Carhouse east expansion of approximately 30,000 square feet, a Carhouse south expansion of approximately 30,000 square feet,a basement extension of approximately 9,000 square feet, the rehabilitation of the existing Carhouse roof, and the replacement of the subway exterior wash.
Construction included the installation of mechanical systems like service piping, 25 new roof top units, a new traction power system to the entire yard, and a new signal system, as well as extensive underpinning work to the existing structure.
The existing Wilson Carhouse could only accommodate 6-car trains at time, so the expansion incorporated two new work bays with multi-level work platforms and overhead bridge cranes. Additionally, two new six-car maintenance tracks were added to the east and the south end of the Carhouse was extended by two train car lengths.
