University of Windsor Campus Transformation
Find Fortis at the University of Windsor completing two significant projects for the transforming campus. Fortis Group is proud to be partnering with EllisDon on the two largest capital projects for the University.
The Lancer Sport and Recreation Centre is one of Fortis Group’s most active sites, with over 20 different trade disciplines on-site each day. The building spans about the size of a city block and adjoins the existing facility, making the Lancer Centre the University’s largest, most visible and utilized site.
The transformation 50 years in the making continues for the Ron W. Ianni Faculty of Law Building at the University of Windsor. The future building will retain its bold exterior while offering a reimagined collaborative environment to better serve students for decades to come. Stay tuned as we progress on the massive transformation moving legal education at the University into the 21st century.
Little Canada – Canada’s Largest Miniature Adventure
Fortis Group was excited to be back at 10 Dundas Square to help bring the uniquely Canadian experience of Little Canada to the iconic location! Little Canada is an imaginative and world-class experience that brings a major celebration of our country in miniature form.
The project required Fortis to pivot and develop creative solutions to deliver the immersive museum throughout the past year successfully. Congratulations to the entire team for their dedication to completing the project safely and effectively!
Glen Hill Terrace Completion
This past June, Durham Christian Homes had their official grand opening of Glen Hill Terrace in Whitby, Ontario. The three-storey masonry & precast structural building spread over 130,000 square feet features 160beds with five unique resident home areas, each with dining and living room areas.
Our team worked diligently to deliver a comfortable at-home environment for all residents creating a true continuum of care for Durham Christian Homes. Fortis Group was proud to complete Durham Region’s first long-term care redevelopment project.
Building for the Future with GECDSB
Fortis is currently completing two new schools, totalling 170,000 sq. ft for the Greater Essex County District School Board. We’re proud to be continuing our excellent relationship with GECDSB to help build a foundation of success for students throughout the Windsor-Essex community.
The future state-of-the-art Amherstburg high school will feature 30 classrooms and several wings to accommodate specific technical and academic streams such as culinary & hospitality, robotics, construction, and transportation. The new location brings together the current schools General Amherst and Western Secondary School.
Eastwood Elementary will bring together the existing school and Parkview Public school to one location. The new school will include a dedicated pre-school area, gymnasium, library, music room, classrooms for junior kindergarten through to grade 8, an outdoor play area and a new soccer field.
