Modernizing mail processing
Canada's largest and most advanced mail processing plant
Consolidating numerous facilities across Metro Vancouver, Canada Post required a new processing centre that would merge multiple operations into an ultra-efficient, sustainable facility. Strategically located near the Vancouver International Airport, the facility houses both Canada Post operations and mail inspection services by Canada Border Services.
Together with Bird Design-Build Construction Inc. we designed a facility that can process on average 40,000 letters each hour. This LEED Silver certified facility improves indoor air quality, maximizes daylight and reduces waste. With 60 loading bays, and 2 storeys of administrative offices, the mail processing facility bigger and better than ever before. Home to 900+ staff we knew it was important to provide an escape and designed a cafeteria and patio that offer stunning views the north shore mountains.
It’s the most integrated and automated plant that Canada Post has, and probably in the world
