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.

Office spaces with abundant daylight and superior indoor air quality.

Adopting sustainable and energy-efficient building practices, such as employing the use of recyclable materials, conserving water use, and workspaces with daylight.
