In 2013 Brock Plaza Corporation engaged Quartek Group to provide planning, architectural, and engineering services for the planning and engineering approvals, design, and construction of a 4 storey, 24-unit, 86-bedroom apartment building at 49 John Macdonell Street. The building will be owned by Brock Plaza Corporation but is operated by Brock University, with the University entering into a long-term lease agreement. The building is intended to house graduate and international students from the Brock community. Design and site layout of the building included meeting Brock’s facility requirements for access, security, and integration with Brock IT services in addition to meeting municipal and regional design requirements.

Quartek Group’s design team provided planning, civil, architectural, structural, mechanical, and electrical consulting services.
