Simcoe County Administration Centre
The Simcoe County Administration Centre is undergoing a major expansion. The addition of a vastly expanded facility has resulted in the creation of three exterior courtyards. We took this opportunity to develop three typical landscapes of the County’s environment and to condense them into interpretative form. The landscape environments created include the Niagara Escarpment, the Canadian Shield and the Simcoe County Farmland. A memorial park to honour Simcoe County’s leaders has also been developed.
The site design integrated native plants and seed mixtures to minimize maintenance operations and to create a more sustainable landscape. The project received a Green Council Award of Excellence.
