King Township has outgrown its existing facility and has purchased a surplus school from the local school board for repurposing into an Administration Centre.

In Spring of 2016 the Township of King retained +VG Architects to undertake the design and Construction of their new Municipal Administration Centre. The scope of this project was based on the Strategic Space Needs Assessment, also completed by +VG in 2015.

As part of this project, three options were developed at the concept design stage which included existing Building Condition Assessment and comparison costing for each option. The result of this high level investigation was a fundamental decision to proceed with a new administration building on the school site.

The building design incorporates many green initiatives like geothermal mechanical systems and enhanced sustainable site strategies, and is anticipated to meet either LEED Silver or Gold level certification.
