With mandates from over 40 of Canada’s top 100 companies, Navigator is Canada’s leading high-stakes public strategy and communications firm. “When you can’t afford to lose” is their motto.
MARANT was retained under a construction management contract by Navigator’s Project Manager and their relocation team.
A unique aspect of the 18th floor space was a two-storey atrium area, which was integrated into a multipurpose room that is used as a lunch room, lounge and as an open area for client receptions. Unique lighting fixtures, millwork, wall and floor treatments were incorporated into the space giving it a sophisticated yet grounded tone. The entrance to the suite has an off centre vestibule with a side entry that is uncommon in corporate office towers. The door and surround is quarter cut walnut with hidden custom hardware that links the demising walls, which are custom glazing.
“I was very impressed with the level of detail and dedication to our project that MARANT’s team provided. Our site guy was the best I have ever experienced... he was terrific in every way and gave 110% to getting our project done right and on time.”
