Design Review, Whitehorse Young Offenders Centre, Yukon - 1998

Client:
Building type:

The Government of Yukon had proposed that the Whitehorse Young Offender Centre be renovated to provide two new quiet rooms to assist in resident management. We were asked to review four proposed design options based on operational and security implications. We reviewed a previously completed functional assessment of the facility and spoke with Department of Health and Social Services staff. It was concluded that only one additional room was required. We identified the potential operational benefits and problems associated with the four alternate locations. Completed in 1998.

Thomson Centre Expansion, Whitehorse, Yukon - 1997

Client:
Building type:

The Thomson Centre is a 51-bed continuing care facility attached to Whitehorse General Hospital. An additional 30 beds were required to meet demand. We reviewed existing operations and building use, provided advice on the application of the BC Multi–Level Care Facility area allocation guidelines, and established a framework for defining building development options. A decision was subsequently made to provide a new replacement facility. Completed in 1997.
