3M Canada implemented a physical transformation at their headquarters in London Ontario, involving renovations to their existing office facilities, as well as a 37,000-square foot addition. McKay-Cocker was selected to manage the design, tendering and construction for the entire project, which was carried out in several phases over a year and a half.
Construction included a new parking lot, renovations from the basement up to the fifth floor of the office tower and an expansion. The office renovations were staged one floor at time in order to allow relocation of the employees. The office concept was changed from traditional enclosed offices to a more open feeling concept with moveable glass partitions and collaborative work space, all with bright and attractive finishes that provided an exciting workplace environment.
The office addition was a two-storey steel framed and precast structure clad with curtain wall and repurposed granite from the existing building.
The design for this project was a collaborative effort between McKay-Cocker’s in-house design-build staff along with the following design firms: Endri Poletti Architect, Chorley and Bisset Engineers; Ron Koudys Landscape Architect, Mayhew, In2Space Interior Solutions and Haworth Ideation Group.
