Scope and Content
This project series documents the design of a US pre-clearance facility at terminal one of the Toronto International Airport in Mississauga, Ontario in 1978. The office identified the project number as 7805.
Since the early 1960s, John B. Parkin Associates, and later John C. Parkin's new firm Parkin Architects Planners, had been commissioned by the government Department of Transport Air Services to complete more than a dozen projects at the Toronto International Airport, including terminals one and two. This project consisted of the design of an area to accommodate pre-clearance screening to the US, which was located between fingers one and two at terminal one. The area is referred to as a node, and contained washrooms, customs areas, immigration areas, and a duty free that was accessible to international traffic. Many gates at terminal one had to be redesignated to accommodate this new facility.
The project is recorded through drawings and textual records dating from 1978. The drawings are largely reprographic copies of floor plans and site plans, with sections of the original terminal one building included. Some drawings in this project series were created by the architectural firm Searle, Wilbee, Rowland, which was one of the names used for Parkin's firm after the merger of John B. Parkin Associates with Winnipeg-based firm Smith, Carter and Searle. The textual records include conference reports, correspondence and a feasibility report.
Materials in this project series have been kept in their original order and/or arranged by material type.
