In association with Moriyama & Teshima Architects, WalterFedy provided project management, architectural, engineering, and construction management services for the new Waterloo Region Museum and Visitor Orientation Centre. Our team also served as sustainable consultants for certification of the LEED® Silver building, the first LEED® certified museum in Canada. 

 

Our team also simultaneously constructed a 3,350 SF expansion to the Region’s existing Curatorial Centre to accommodate an exhibit design studio, fabrication work shops, exhibit storage, and curator offices. The Centre now measures 35,000 SF and is where the Region stores and preserves its artefact collections. It was designed and constructed in 1995 to resemble some Waterloo Region barns in shape and in colour. WalterFedy met this specific design for the expansion. Meeting modern museum environmental standards, there are three independent air handling systems for the building - one for the offices and two for artefact storage areas.

 

Located at a historical crossroads—two transportation routes that were critical to the development of Canada and Waterloo Region—the Waterloo Region Museum serves as an entryway to Doon Heritage Village, a living village depicting life in the early 1900’s. The 45,000 SF facility will enable new arrivals to better understand the correlation between the region’s current prosperity and the spirit, entrepreneurship, and determination shown by the early settlers.
