Scope and Content

This project series documents the site consultancy and construction of the College of Nurses of Ontario in Toronto from 1980-1982. The office identified the project number as 8003.

This project consisted of a building with a three-storey office space and atrium on the east side and a single-storey council chamber on the west side. The project was adapted to fit its surroundings, which had a residential landscape to the west and commercial zoning to the east. The building was 2536 square meters in size and cost approximately $5.2 million. In 1982, the design won a Canadian Architect Award of Excellence. However, some judges later stated that design changes made during construction had destroyed the original concept and the finished building lacked the polish of the original proposal.

The project is recorded through drawings, photographs and textual records dating from 1980-1985. A large part of these drawings are reprographic copies arranged within the textual materials. There is also one presentation board of sections and elevations. Photographs show the project site and construction progress of the building. The textual records include construction invoices, correspondence, change orders, calculations, site reports, minutes of meetings, design notes and the program for the opening of the building.
