Scope and Content

This project series documents the Sifto Salt Division Mill and Warehouse of Domtar Chemicals Limited in Goderich, Ontario, Canada from 1962-1963. The office probably identified the project number as either 6237 or 6264.

This project consisted of a 62,000 square foot facility on the existing industrial complex of Domtar. The building was clad in epoxy faced brick and concrete up to the third floor, while the rest of the structure was clad in ribbed cement asbestos siding up to the roof. The building included process areas, packaging areas, a warehouse, bagging room, offices, cafeteria and canteen, and shipping and recieving areas. This project won a special mention at the Massey Medal for Architecture in 1964.

The project is recorded through a mounted photograph showing the finished buillding.
