Project: Antigonish Public Works

County of Antigonish Public Works Facility – Antigonish, Nova Scotia

C.J. MacLellan provided engineering services for site development and building design elements for the Public Works Recycling facility at Antigonish County.

CJMac was responsible for full survey including topographic details for earthworks and parking lot analysis, siting of the access road and parking area, parking lot grading, drainage and stormwater management, and lighting. Structural design of the foundation and slab with consideration for wood frame construction for the office component and steel truss and metal siding for the garage component was considered. The facility provides a one storey office facility including washrooms, kitchen, boardroom, and a five bay Public Works garage for equipment maintenance and storage.

CJMac staff provided full design and contract administration services, obtained approvals from the Municipality, and the NSEL for an on site wastewater disposal system upgrade as well as increased water usage from the existing well.

The building considered slab on grade construction with frost wall, infloor heating, steel siding with light panels, multiple automatic overhead doors, steel truss and metal insulated roof, and roof drainage controls. The office facility was architecturally designed for interior and exterior finishes and included mechanical and electrical design by CJMac staff.

Site construction was overseen by engineers and inspection staff from C.J. MacLellan & Associates Inc.  The facility was commissioned in April of 2009.
