The renovation of 5151 Terminal Road is a midlife refresh of a 40-year-old building. The objective is to visually update and upgrade the quality of the exterior envelope of the building. This will result in achieving four principal goals:
1. Increase the building’s energy-efficiency.
2. Visually integrate the existing Emera headquarters (1H) on Lower Water Street with the renovated Terminal Road building by using a shared design language and materials palette.
3. Move 5151 Terminal Road towards a ‘Class A’ office space.
4. Develop a physical link between the two buildings with an elevated pedestrian crossing, or pedway, across Lower Water Street.
