SurveyMonkey is the world’s most widely used cloud-based, survey development software-as-a-service platform. It provides free, customizable surveys, as well as a suite of paid back-end programs that include data analysis, sample selection, bias elimination, and data representation tools for areas such as customer satisfaction and employee engagement. SurveyMonkey’s mission is to power individuals and organizations to measure, benchmark and act on the opinions that drive success.
MARANT was retained as the construction manager for this Ottawa project following a vigorous selection process. Serviced through our Ottawa office team, the design intent of the multi-floor facility was to reflect the corporate brand and personality while supporting its culture and workflows. The work environment is 90% open-plan, using benching systems in clusters or ‘neighbourhoods,’ therefore, construction needed to provide adequate buffer between group, team & client meeting spaces, hoteling desks and phone rooms. Having been hired prior to final site selection, MARANT helped value-engineer throughout the design development phase, providing estimates on various design feasibilities that would offer the highest design standard for SurveyMonkey’s fixed budgetary parameters. The project was completed on schedule and to the complete satisfaction of the client and core team.
“With a challenging, multi-phased project schedule, the team at MARANT was able to quickly respond to unforeseen issues during the construction and, together with the core consulting team, got the project done on time & to a great final result. Well done!”
