    Project description:   
    
    Parks Canada is responsible for protecting nationally significant examples of Canada’s natural and cultural heritage and enabling the stories of these treasured objects and places to be shared with Canadians.
     
    The 8,220 m2 purpose-built collection storage facility, located in Gatineau, Quebec, will house over 25 million archaeological and historical objects under Parks Canada’s care, to ensure the long-term preservation and conservation of the collection for the benefit of present and future generations.
     
    At the new facility, the collection will be cared for by a national team of specialists, curators, collection specialists and conservators. This passionate team will ensure the collection is managed, stored and easily retrievable. This will enhance Parks Canada’s ability to share the stories of these objects with Canadians in new and innovative ways.
     
    Key features of the facility:
     
    Optimal environmental and storage conditions, such as:
    Climate control with specific temperature and humidity set points in the storage areas. 
    A storage system that maximizes space and provides flexible storage capacity to facilitate access and retrieval, and to account for changes in the collection over time. 
    
    Access to and work on the collection facilitated through: 
    Collaborative workspaces to access and view objects and related documentation.
    Dedicated reception, meeting, and ceremonial spaces, including special ventilation for ceremonies such as smudging, to accommodate visitors, events, and special gatherings. 
    Dedicated packaging workshop, loading dock, and quarantine area to safely ship and receive objects. 
    Office spaces with abundant daylight and superior indoor air quality.
     
    The facility’s environmental footprint will be minimized through green building practices such as: 
    Adopting sustainable and energy-efficient building practices, such as employing the use of recyclable materials, conserving water use, and workspaces with daylight.
    Achieving a net zero carbon footprint by solely using renewable energy (hydroelectricity) to power its operations. 
    Adopting energy-efficient practices with the goal of reducing energy use to 30% less than the target stipulated in the National Energy code for buildings (NECB). 
    The use of native species in exterior landscaping and dry ponds to retain excess water from storms.
