MARANT was retained by MediaCom and its project management firm to provide construction management and general contracting services to renovate the office facility due to the aggressive schedule.
The interior space was designed and built to mimic a “brick-and-beam” building and was accomplished by creating a two storey mezzanine area with an internal connecting staircase. This feature space was created as the company’s central employee hub, which included a lunch room, lounge and a conference facility. The ceilings in this area were left open, but painted to match the colour scheme. Large wood beams were installed to replicate the look of an older building.
The construction required that the entire base building ceiling system be replaced with new acoustics tiles. The LAN room included an emergency power provision and state-of-the-are audio-visual equipment was installed in the meeting rooms.
“Our first building deal fell through, which meant we had to scramble to get the project at 1 Dundas complete with very tight timelines. The team at MARANT were absolutley fantastic, they were collaborators with the design team, they set an aggressive schedule and delivered a great space on time and on budget. On top of everything else they were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish.”
