The Forensics facility concept was developed for the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation to draw interest in locating proposed laboratories in Chilliwack.
The concept provides for laboratory and administration space adjacent to the Vedder River and the surrounding amenities of Garrison Crossing to showcase an attractive lifestyle for the potential employees of the facility. The building concept draws inspiration from the surrounding mountainous region with sloping walls and heavy timber detailing at the entries. The core of the building employs wire gabion baskets filled with local charcoal stone as a rainscreen cladding feature with relation to the materials along the Vedder River. A green roof is proposed to the South with views onto the adjacent river.
