Yonge Street Office Interiors

Open Architects did the space planning and tenant fit-up for the offices of a multi-departmental company.

The overall limitations of the floor space had to be taken under consideration to accommodate the different and often conflicting needs of each department and its leadership,

We prepared programming and utilization studies in consultation with the various departments and conducted round table, multi-departmental meetings which allowed senior management to compare the facilities of different departments based on quantities and uniform standards.

We commissioned studies and reports on the building systems which allowed management to justify systemic upgrades including the complete overhaul of the HVAC system. The overhaul resulted in a drastic drop in energy costs as well as a decrease in employee sick days.

Renovations were planned in stages to allow the Client’s operations to continue during construction with minimal disruption; we developed a staging plan whereby staff would be moved to temporary locations within the floor plate and then to their new office space within the same floor plate with no down time. The result was very successful.

Our attention to detail included custom millwork for executive offices and the selection of all new furniture and fixtures.
