LEA Awarded Structural and Transportation Engineering for The Canadian Canoe Museum

LEA is providing structural and transportation engineering for the new Canadian Canoe Museum (CCM) in Peterborough, Ontario. The build will use an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach and meet Class A conservation standards.

The project consists of building a new museum on Johnson Property located on Little Lake in Peterborough, away from the floodplain to ensure the preservation of the shoreline and natural waterfront. The project also entails a targeted use of Mass Timber for the structure and a Parking Study.

Once completed, the new 62,000 sq. ft. museum will be able to hold 100% of CCM’s collection of more than 600 canoes, kayaks and paddled watercrafts with custom canoe storage integrated with the building’s structural elements.

Project partners include Lett Architects Inc., Chandos Construction Ltd, Kelson Mechanical, DG Biddle & Associates, Nordic Structures, Lancer Electric, Cambium Inc., Engage Engineering, Thomas Grace & Associates, and JHG Consulting Network Inc.
