+VG Architects were selected as Project Architect by PCL Constructors Canada in January 2010 to deliver this Design/Build Project on a FastTrack schedule.

The $41 Million, 75,000 ft2, LEED® Silver Certified complex was planned, designed and delivered – on budget – in only 20 months. The project included:

Mattamy Theatre
Milton’s new 500 seat proscenium theatre showcases drama, music, orchestra, dance, as well as lectures, concerts, cinema and conferences. The main programming is supported by interstitial spaces providing the community with destinations and opportunities for interaction.

  • 500 seat theatre
  • Public areas including, reception, lobby, public washrooms, box office and bar/concession areas
  • Auditorium, stage, orchestra pit, rehearsal hall, associated audio visual and technical support and dressing rooms
  • Administration and support areas including offices, lounges, staff washrooms, storage, housekeeping and lockers

Minmaxx Theatre
This 200 seat “Black Box” multi-purpose theatre space features a sprung floor, retractable seating, lighting grid, and theatrical sound and lighting systems. As the stage sizing and specifications are identical to the adjacent 500-seat theatre, it can serve as a rehearsal space.

The room may be configured for performances, corporate functions, receptions, cabarets, etc. Backstage amenities such as dressing rooms are shared with the main theatre.
The community meeting room systems include video projection and audio reinforcement to support corporate events, meetings, workshops, seminars or smaller-scale receptions.

All of the systems in these spaces are integrated into the base building control for seamless operation. Video may be distributed from the theatres to any of the spaces.

Holcim Gallery
The Gallery is nestled in the Library. It accommodates both individual and group visual art exhibitions. Its large glass front wall allows for art displays to be seen even when the gallery is closed.
