Canada Post Corporation - Mail Sorting Facility
The facility is the company’s first new mail processing plant in more than 20 years and is a part of an overall investment of $160 million in the city. The new plant is situated on 27 acres of land near the James Armstrong Richardson Airport, replacing the 52-year-old plant in downtown Winnipeg.
The new facility houses a 250,000 square foot mail sorting plant; features 41 dock loading bays; and has 25,000 square feet of office space.
In addition to housing state-of-the-art technology, the new processing facility is the company’s first plant to be registered a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) building. It has been designed with special considerations for employees’ health and safety. This design-build was completed over a 12 month time period.
