Level of archival description:
Extent and medium:
  • 75 drawings (all reprographic copies)
Scope and content:
This project series documents the plant expansion program for the IBM plant in North York, Ontario from 1969-1970. The office identified the project number as 68040.
This project consisted of proposed expansions to the IBM plant located at 844 Don Mills Road, which was built in 1951 and formerly served as their head office. The expansion program proposed four stages of construction, broken into alphabetized lots to divide the work. The construction was to consist of work on underground utilities, the building of each lot, and changes to the roads surrounding the plant. At the same time, Parkin Architects Planners was building IBM's new headquarters on the same property (see project series AP018.S1.1965.PR03 described in this fonds).
The project is recorded through reprographic copies of drawings dating from 1969-1970, which consist of construction drawings and as built drawings.
