TD Bank Group
Project Lego, 77 Bloor Street West
Project LEGO* was a 225,600 ft2 renovation in a Class A downtown Toronto tower, and was delivered through a full Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) contract.
The project was heavily phased, as the scope covered twelve floors with, initially, only a single floor of swing space available.
A fully collaborative effort from all team members saw a 10% reduction in total project costs, which achieved the owner’s project goals and resulted in greater savings against an already-reduced target cost.
HH Angus worked closely with the mechanical subcontractor during the intensive schematic design phase to agree on design principles and installation elements and, in the process, reduced the mechanical build costs by 20%. These savings could be realized through a good collaboration with the TD Bank client, who was able to adjust and alter its accepted design standards during the validation process. The collaboration also helped the overall project achieve some aspirational goals that were initially considered as ‘nice to have’.
The IPD process of teaming with multiple user groups was very collaborative and worked well to identify solutions to issues. In the end, the team was successful in meeting the schedule and coming in under budget, which enabled the owner to fund added scope within the project and enhance the overall customer experience for their user groups.
