Jack Layton Ferry Terminal, Toronto Ontario
New Ticket Booths and Canopy, Toronto Island Ferry Docks, Toronto Ontario: In order to better accommodate the increasing numbers of passengers going to the Toronto Island a new set of prefabricated aluminum and glass ticket booths were designed to be put at the leading edge of an expanded outdoor waiting area. Up to 19,000 people can use this facility on a hot summer weekend. A new galvanized steel canopy is supported on cables from tall masts to provide shelter for people at the booths. It serves as a gateway to the maritime experience that awaits them. Although this is the first major renovation of the fifty year old Ferry Docks all this had to be accomplished within a very limited budget and constricted construction schedule, whilst the facility was in use. This year construction is underway on further renovations of the mainland terminal itself. These include upgrades to the staff and public buildings. As well a new, glass enclosed waiting area with a dramatic sloping fire treated plywood ceiling that will welcome use by Island residents in the winter.
