Rendering by Zeidler Partnership Architects

Union Station in Toronto is the busiest transportation hub in all of Canada. With it being the gateway to the downtown core, it provides access to various forms of transportation. The train area of the station is covered by a heritage designated structure that was built in the late 1920s and covers 8 acres.

S + A Services Included:

Mechanical

To better accommodate ever increasing passenger volumes between the Union Station Concourse and Platform Levels, additional stairs, escalators and elevators are being built.

Electrical

Emergency power is being provided to allow selected elevators to continue to operate in the event of a power outage or emergency.

The enclosures for these vertical access elements were designed to integrate with the larger Train Shed Roof Rehabilitation project and feature long life, energy efficient LED lighting.
