Connor, Clark & Lunn Financial Group Ltd. (CC&L) provides a broad range of traditional and alternative investment products and services to individuals, advisors and institutional investors. They provide pension plans, corporations, government agencies, First Nations, foundations and other not-for-profit organizations with investment solutions to meet their unique investment challenges. Leveraging the strengths and discipline of its institutional investment management heritage, they also bring effective, high quality investment solutions to private wealth investors.

MARANT was retained under a construction management contract by CC&L’s project manager and internal relocation team.  The company’s previous work environment was inefficient, occupying space over three non-contiguous floors in a ‘B’ class tower. They were keen for the opportunity to create a new workplace that better suited its culture, the needs of its employees and, specifically, its clients. The new space is much more contemporary and consists of 80% open work-stations on the perimeter, with private offices, and numerous meeting & breakout rooms surrounding the core. The bright, flexible and open-concept layout over a single floor creates greater efficiencies and collaboration between divisions. Specialty millwork, glazing and bright colours also add to the dynamic new space.

“The entire MARANT team did a great job for us. No matter what obstacle was put in our way, they figured out how to resolve it expeditiously and pushed forward to get us in on schedule.  We love our space.”
