Siemens Edge Management

The Siemens site is adjacent to Iroquois Shoreline Woods Park, a significant woodlot in the Oakville Area. The tenants specifically selected this site to increase employee engagement, health and satisfaction that result through the human connection with nature (biophilic design)

Development adjacent to the significant natural feature required the removal of highly invasive buckthorn species without disturbing natural grades, and the establishment of edge planting to protect the significant woodlot edge with native species.

Maintaining and enhancing an existing overland flow route along the edge of the woodlot resulted in the creation of a natural division between the woodlot and the development site.
