Buttcon Limited was the general contractor for the Union Station Early Works Project. Union Station is Canada’s busiest train shed as it is a transit hub for all incoming and outcoming train service to the downtown Toronto core. It’s tenants include the Toronto Transit Commission (subway), Via Rail (nationwide long distance rail service) and Go Transit (light rail servicing the surrounding GTA). This complex project was phased over a 24-month period, working on average 6 days per week and multiple shifts to ensure the existing train shed remained operational during construction. All work was scheduled and coordinated in advance with Metrolinx, often with an hour-by-hour schedule. The major scope of work evolved around upgrading the train shed’s electrical, lighting, CCTV, security, and communication systems for both its operations and customers along with heritage restoration works. The signature “key” feature of this project was the supply and installation of a new suspended wireway along all platforms concealing all of the distribution, power, communications, and AV wiring and cabling, and incorporating all lighting, CCTV and PTZ cameras, PINS monitors, PA systems, and fire alarm.
