VIA RAIL UNION STATION
Location: Winnipeg, MB
Client: VIA Rail Canada
Budget: $6.5 million
BridgmanCollaborative Architecture provided master planning and renovation design services for the 250,000 ft2 Union Station (1909) in Winnipeg. The purpose of the renovations was to provide renewed accessibility in all areas of the building, conservation of the heritage features of the historic structure, and contemporary interventions for adaptive reuse of the building. Methodology included documentation of the existing building and development of historically sensitive interventions to meet project requirements, budget and schedule.
Our in-house expertise includes heritage conservation, adaptive reuse of buildings, universal (accessible design), project management, energy modeling and collaborative consultation with stakeholders.
Planning and building assessment established a budget ceiling of $6.5M with the client. BridgmanCollaborative worked with client and stakeholders to divide work into sub-projects and prioritize all components parts. Approximately half the budget related to heritage and barrier-free design.
Construction was substantially completed within eighteen months of the awarding of the project to BridgmanCollaborative Architecture. The overall project budget remained within required $6.5M budget.
