Situated on a prominent site at the entrance to a prestigious industrial park along the QEW in west Mississauga, the landscape design for this corporate facility utilized expressive landforms and extensive tree planting to achieve visual interest. Planting beds were minimized to reduce costly on-going maintenance. As the trees have grown over the intervening years, the property has achieved the intended goal of a park-like pastoral setting. The work was expertly executed by Aldershot Landscape Contractors Ltd. The building and landscape was recognized with a specially juried "Millennium Design Icon" award for excellence in urban design.

OLA was called upon by the internationally acclaimed architects Diamond + Schmitt to provide a comprehensive range of experise for this new post secondary institution established by Humber College and the University of Guelph. Site survey data was interpreted to enable a detailed quantitative refinement of both established, and proposed hard landscape elements. This technical process ensured that there was a perfect marriage between site and building.

A wide variety of plants material was utilized for maximum visual interest throughout the seasons. To further enhance the building, specimen plant material was sourced in order to create immediate impact.

Due to budgetary constraints, the dynamic elliptical plaza for this Scarborough library was never built - only the architectural concrete wing walls, stairs, and custom stainless railings from the working drawings prepared by OLA.
