GSP Group collaborated with WalterFedy and Du Toit, Allsopp & Hillier (DTAH) in preparing the Cambridge Campus Master Plan for Conestoga College. The Campus Master Plan established a vision and direction for the phased development of this new college campus sitting alongside the existing Doon Campus on the other side of Highway 401.
GSP Group also provided planning and landscape architecture services to the LEED Silver Phase 1 building and site development team led by M+T Architects. The landscape program focused on creating a pedestrian-focused campus. Design included the entrance drive from Fountain Street, the first stage of the central green and parking lot design featuring a series of bioswales to manage parking lot stormwater runoff.
Implementing the master plan, GSP Group collaborated with Moriyama & Teshima Architects on the Phase 1 development in providing sustainable landscape design, project management, and construction services. Implementation by GSP Group included heat island effect reduction with planting and bioswale water management; water-efficient native planting; innovative stormwater and salt management; site furnishings with recycled content; creek rehabilitation; accessible, open space development; and, sustainable specifications incorporating organic landscape installation and maintenance practices.
