DSRA in design partnership with Baird Sampson Neuert


The project involved designing a new entry kiosk and gift shop and renovating and refurbishing an existing visitor centre to include a new cafĂ©, accessible washrooms, staff rooms and new deck areas. 
The visitor centre is located on the eastern most coast of Newfoundland and subject to severe weather conditions and a rugged terrain and the renovation was challenging due to existing site conditions that were causing partial subsidence in the existing structure, severe space restrictions, and height limitations to match the existing levels.
