This new building was a result of a relocation of the existing Federal Building including the Post Office to make way for a downtown commercial development.
The new building site is situated on the edge of the downtown core.
The building programme included a new public postal retail counter, a mail processing area and high dock area. The site accommodates shipping and receiving, corporate fleet parking, public parking and landscaping. The building was situated on the existing street line to maintain a downtown street edge.
The building was erected in a five month period and utilized prefabricated stucco wall panels on a structural steel frame founded on a concrete caisson sub-structure to deal with poor soil conditions.
