Toronto's infrastructure needs are growing as the city does, so along with hoardings and closed lanes for new office and condo construction, it's not unheard of to be detoured around watermain and other service work too.

Copeland Transformer Station project a few times already (check the related news links below), but it's time for another look as Toronto Hydro has released a video detailing the complex build going on at the IBI Group Architects-designed project now. We think you'll enjoy the insight into the project, both during the construction phase and what we will end up with. There's a new tunnel as part of it all too that you may not have known about…
