ZAS Architects Inc.
Designed to meet LEED® Silver Certification, this 55,600 square foot facility is comprised of a state-of-the-art fully functional commercial kitchen, an administration area, and a 4,800 square foot survey area and an 11,500 square foot dining room area to serve approximately 3,000 soldiers per day. Construction of the $18 million facility included the development of the site to include carpool parking, bicycle racks, an electric car charging station and a large outdoor patio surrounded by carefully selected vegetation/ landscaping.
“The hands-on involvement from senior and administration staff during construction ultimately led to the project’s successful completion and enjoyment by the soldiers and community of CFB Borden.”
Del Cordeiro, Associate, ZAS Architects + Interiors
The design of the facility incorporated masonry, an aluminum cladding system, glazing and glue laminated construction to facilitate two major architectural features – a large clear high spans curtain wall (which provides natural lighting that embraces the surrounding nature), and tree-like columns which branch out to a large clear finished natural glulam wood beam. The nature-themed glass murals and graphics provide a peaceful and comforting area to enjoy a meal.
