Scope and Content

This project series documents the construction of the Victoria and Grey Trust Company office in Stratford, Ontario from 1981-1984. The office identified the project number as 8116.

This project consisted of an office building and computer center to be the new head office of Victoria and Grey Trust Company. Originally, the building was proposed as an eleven-storey office tower, but eventually the design was scaled back to five storeys with a basement and penthouse. Once construction commenced, the building became even shorter and included a parking garage. The building was located at 60 Erie Street. This project documents only the construction of this office building; the design was completed under a different project number assigned by the office (see project series AP018.S1.1980.PR14 in this fonds).

The project is recorded through drawings, photographic materials and textual records dating from 1981-1984. The drawings are mostly reprographic copies arranged within the textual materials. There are some original detail drawings arranged within the textual materials. Some drawings were produced by architecture firm Routhwaite and Fairfield. The photographic materials show the construction progress of the project. The textual records consist of correspondence, conference and site reports, authority and detail documentation, financial documents, supplementary instructions, change orders and specifications.
