This project was completed for Royal & Sun Alliance (“RSA”), one of Canada’s leading property and casualty insurance companies, providing home, car and business insurance through a network of independent brokers nationwide. With almost 3,700 employees, they are nationally represented with regional offices and branches coast to coast.
MARANT was retained as the general contractor for the project, consolidating the organization to five full floors at 18 York Street in Toronto’s new south financial core. The building is a LEED Silver building with an under-floor HVAC system. RSA took full advantage of the building by planning the space using an open concept for approximately 75% of the facility and achieving LEED Silver certification for the project. Employee amenity and alternate meeting areas that included folding partitions, were key to the success of the new office.
“The project was very fast tracked and, although we determined to approach the process as a general tender, we were extremely satisfied with the quality result and professional service that MARANT provided throughout the process. Our employees love the space.”
