An extremely challenging project due to the aggressive schedule and the amount of base building repair work that included elevator upgrades. Upon completion the new facility accommodate over 220 people.
MARANT coordinated closely with the architect and client to ensure the budget aligned with the design intent. The modern office environment was built within an historical brick and beam space which was fully rehabilitated and exposed as part of the design concept. The project included a rooftop patio with an interconnecting staircase with related structural work.
“MARANT had only eight weeks to manage the phase one build-out of our new space – a 50,000 sf old Toronto warehouse. The base building was in ruins and the design imposed, complex. MARANT took on our project with full enthusiasm and made the impossible – possible.”
