Bird constructed a new technical support complex for the Department of National Defence Area Support Unit (ASU) London. The project is a multi-purpose building that includes medical and dental clinics, service bays, vehicle bays and warehouse space. The scope of work also included demolishing an existing building and upgrading the site infrastructure at Wolseley Barracks.
The project was divided into two phases. The first phase permitted consolidation of the operations of the unit, which reduced the land and building area occupied by ASU London by facilitating the relocation of the military units previously housed at the Highbury Complex. Phase two involved the renovation of Building 50, which is home to DCC ASU London and 31 Canadian Brigade group headquarters.
