Scope and content:
This project series documents the design and construction of the Bank of Montreal Central Computer Complex Two in Scarborough, Ontario from 1977-1982. The office identified the project number as 7709.
The Central Computer Complex Two was built to be used by the Bank of Montreal as a data processing centre with offices for staff on site. The complex consisted of three octagonal buildings joined by tunnels and skywalks. The first building, Central Computer Complex Two (CCC2), was a three-storey data processing equipment building. The second building, Central Facilities Building (CUB), was a three-storey building devoted to shipping and receiving and employee spaces such as a library, exercise room, cafeteria and lounge, and a medical exam area. The third building, Staff Support Offices, was a four-storey building that contained employee offices. In addition, each building had a penthouse that contained mechanical and electrical equipment. A large part of the project was administered through John C. Parkin’s engineering firm, Parkin Engineers limited, with Paul Keenan acting as president.
The project is recorded through drawings, photographs, presentation boards and textual records dating from 1977-1982. The majority of reprographic copies are drawings used in the construction phase of the project. The photographs show the construction of the building. The textual records include design planning notes, client and contractor correspondence, site reports, change orders, supplementary instructions, specifications, detail drawings, meeting minutes, schedules, and invoices for work completed. Box AP018.S1.1977.PR08.074 contains an index to the textual records, which was created by the office.
