Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics - Addition

The 4 storey, structural steel addition is an expansion to the original 61,000 sf concrete building. The foundations for the addition are founded on both driven piles where feasible and helical piles within close proximity of the original structure. Through bracing and by hanging portions of the structure, large sections of the upper floors cantilever out over the ground floor. Numerous interaction spaces and catwalks on the interior of the building interconnect between the various floor levels
