Location: Wainwright, AB
Architect: aodbt architecture + interior design
Located in Wainwright, AB, the CO-OP Home and AGRO Centre is a dynamic addition to the community, fulfilling the essential need for accessible building materials for both DIY enthusiasts and contractors in the region. This project, designed by aodbt architecture + interior design and constructed by GVN Structures, comprises a hardware store and a lumber storage building with a total area of approximately 2600 m².
The Home Center is 1500 m² of retail space on the main floor with an additional 125 m² of mezzanine office space. The superstructure consists of structural steel supported on grade beams and belled CIP concrete piles. The main floor features a durable slab-on-grade, while the mezzanine utilizes a composite steel deck system. The accompanying lumber storage building is a 980 m² pre-engineered steel-framed structure on a similar foundation.
This project not only meets the immediate needs of the community but also represents a commitment to providing high-quality, accessible building materials for Wainwright and its surrounding areas.
