Level of archival description:
Extent and medium:
  • Approximately 67 drawings (all reprographic copies)
    0.318 l.m. of textual records
Scope and content:
This project series documents the design of the Victoria and Grey Trust Company office in Stratford, Ontario from 1980-1981. The office identified the project number as 8014.

This project consisted of the design of an office building and computer center to be the new head office of Victoria and Grey Trust Company. Originally, two schemes were proposed, both with eleven storeys, but the project was eventually scaled back to five storeys with a basement and penthouse. The building was to be located on Erie Street. This project consisted only of the building's design; it was eventually constructed under a different project number assigned by the office, with changes to the design (see project series AP018.S1.1981.PR16 in this fonds).
The project is recorded through drawings and textual records dating from 1980-1981. The drawings are all reprographic copies, mostly of details, and are arranged within the textual materials. The textual records consist of correspondence, conference reports, tender documentation, pre-design planning, authority documents, inter-office letters, prequalification records and specifications. Box AP018.S1.1980.PR14.001 contains an index to the textual records, which was created by the office.
