In contrast to its forward looking and high tech business model, when Uber Canada was looking for office space in Toronto, they chose to set up shop in an old Post and Beam building in an historic area of the city.
HH Angus’ tenant group was engaged to provide mechanical and electrical consulting engineering to the 14,000 ft2 office fitout project.
As with many Post and Beam fitouts, one of the key challenges for the M&E systems designers was the client’s strong focus on maintaining the aesthetic of the building’s original character. This presents an engineering challenge when the interior design for the open concept collaboration spaces requires the major mechanical and electrical services to be exposed.
The solution to the aesthetics challenge was to have all equipment selections made to compliment the open concept and character of the building.
