Honda Canada Corporate Headquarters
Honda Canada's new corporate headquarters is located in the Town of Markham, near Toronto, Ontario. It is situated on a 53-acre site which includes a four-story LEED™ certified office building interconnected with a product training and development centre and a parts distribution centre. We performed a traffic impact assessment as part of an integrated 25-year long-range planning solution.
Our goal was to assess the road network requirements for the immediate development of Honda's corporate center while also considering the long-term transportation needs of the entire secondary plan area in which Honda Canada is situated. While Honda's application would be well in advance of other developments, we needed to coordinate road improvements with phasing of the surrounding area.
Our work included planning and functional design of new arterial and collector roads, a needs assessment for a new freeway interchange, phasing strategy of the road network and a traffic management plan. Ultimately, we delivered a solution that enabled approval of the timely development of Honda Canada by working with multiple public review agencies and landowners. Planning was approved in 2007, and Honda Canada has since completed construction and moved into its new corporate center.
