This 8,880 SF project was a “plan and spec” contract to build an enclosure for an existing outdoor pool complete with a retractable roof and sliding stackable doors on two sides to provide an open-air feeling in warm weather. The project provided an interesting mix of requirements that included the installation of an engineered fully glazed aluminum structure, designed and supplied under a separate
direct contract with the Club.
The enclosure is a beautiful, modern shape that enhances the traditional look of the mid-century flat-roofed structure around it. The curved roof bends gently towards a clear glass wall, creating an elegant space while enhancing the image of one of Toronto’s most popular private clubs. The 75’ by 97’ enclosure houses a 25m lap pool and has a retractable polycarbonate roof and 1” insulated glass in all the sidewalls. The roof features rain sensors that close up the panels at the first sign of rain. The long roof panels retract from the eaves up, allowing the roof to open up over 50% to just beyond the apex of the curved roof. Sidewalls are made up of 10’-5” multiple stacking doors, which all move aside into a small stacking bay, leaving two walls completely open to the air.
Maple Reinders also created an 8’ high, 70’ long glass-enclosed viewing mezzanine that overlooks the pool area. Built onto the second floor of the adjoining building, it was an element of the project that required careful planning. In addition to the structure, Maple Reinders was responsible for the relocation of the pool treatment equipment to a new basement, the supply and installation of a hot tub, as well as earthworks, underground services, foundations, concrete work, considerable tiling, sound insulation on adjacent structures, and mechanical, HVAC and electrical systems. Maple Reinders performed renovations and exterior landscaping around the pool.
Maple Reinders was awarded a Design-Bid-Build contract to build a new 21,000 SF terminal building at the Region of Waterloo International Airport. The focus of the new terminal is a dramatic public hall area with 28 foot high curved ceilings and excellent air-side visibility.
Maple Reinders designed and constructed of a new Canadian headquarters for research, development and production. Built on a greenfield site, the 20,084 SF, single-storey structure has two roof heights and incorporates white architectural precast and curtainwall.
The construction of the school took place while the existing Westbrook School (built in 1953) was in use for an entire school year. The contract included abatement and demolition of the existing school which was undertaken during the summer break.
