Located in Sarnia, Lambton Shared Services Centre (LSSC) is a consolidated multi-use Government services facility for Lambton County. Service providers include: The County of Lambton Social Services Division, Finance, Court Services Division, Service Ontario and the Ontario Disability Support Program.
The Existing building was originally built for Hudson Bay Company around 1955 and later became part of Sarnia Eaton Centre (Bayside Mall). The Bayside Mall portion was recently demolished to make way for a new retirement housing complex. Shared Services and the Courts are located in the remaining Bay store portion. The physical space needed an expansion and update with new entrance, elevators, stairs, washrooms, and accessibility.
The project involved a complete interior renovation to the existing outdated 2 storey, 60,000 square feet of Government Office Space, including Ground floor Lobby, Meeting Rooms, Workstations, Staff Lounge, Washrooms, Court Room and Court Services. The program included for more accessible spaces throughout to bring the space up to current code requirements. A functional update of the delivery of services was required to better serve the needs of the community.
