CCRA – Canada Border Services

Small Port Building Design

We were commissioned to prepare prototype designs for replacement buildings along small USA/Canada land border crossing stations. The buildings are quite small, "drive through" in style and detailed to meet NRCan's C2000 green building standards. The building program updates the existing building standard to the new mandate of Canada Border Services stations. Low maintenance materials such as galvalume siding and a high pitched rural aesthetic were chosen to withstand the harsh weather conditions at these remote locations (Canada-Alaska).
