Walker Industries Lab & Facilities

Office Building and Lab and Truck Servicing buildings

This project involves the incorporation of two buildings situated about 60 metres apart on a landscaped site, and a 20M x 40M pond between them that doubles as a fire-fighting resevoir. The office building was designed to take full advantage of the view of the site’s quarry, and is organized along a central circulation spine that is naturally lit by clerestory windows.
The Laboratory and Truck Facility building was designed as a visual complement to the office building and is a complex integration of three distinct functions: office space, truck servicing/washing, and research laboratories for waste management and control. The parts are unified into an aesthetic and architectural statement of modern industrial technology.
