We Are Ready to Ship Ground!

The Manitoba Trucking Association recently celebrated a ribbon cutting and dedication of their new office and training facility. We were honored to have worked with this client to expand their capabilities to serve the growing Manitoba trucking industry.

The standard shipping container, primarily used for intermodal freight transport is a quintessential symbol of the trucking industry. Therefore we designed it as an integral part of experiencing the Manitoba Trucking Association’s new facility. Serving as a gateway, the shipping container was painted MTA red in contrast with the main palette of grays that make up the balance of the façades.

The building boasts a large boardroom designed specifically for the association’s business meetings, open and closed executive sized offices, lounge space, smaller breakout meeting rooms, wide corridors with intuitive wayfinding, strategic support spaces and purpose-built intimate training rooms which open up into a larger seminar space.

Due to the dimensional size of the building, it was important to consider ways to draw natural light into the inner-most spaces. Structural glazed walls, doors and skylights were implemented throughout the facility to ensure occupant enjoyment.

The Manitoba Trucking Association is open to the public during regular business hours. We encourage you go and experience the new facility!
