Wildeboer Dellelce LLP
365 Bay Street, 3 Floor Fitout
This 12-storey building is located in the heart of Toronto’s business and financial core. Constructed in 1960, the mechanical and electrical infrastructure was outdated and major redistribution and rework of the existing systems was required in order to suit the new tenant fitout.
HH Angus was engaged to provide fitout services for this commercial office renovation project. Our scope included mechanical, electrical, lighting and communications engineering design for renovations to three floors of office space for a standalone corporate finance and tax law firm.
Innovative layout and lighting design
The 8th floor consisted of renovations to 7,000 ft2 of client-facing space, including a universal washroom, meeting rooms, reception and welcome areas. A large existing boardroom was converted into multipurpose meeting space. This conversion required additional ventilation in order to accommodate up to 50 people.
The 8th floor was also furnished with high-grade finishes and lighting fixtures. Special attention was paid to the specialty lighting design that highlighted unique design features, including dropped ceilings and feature walls.
Centralized café space
The 9th and 10th floor renovation covered 16,050 rentable ft2. The objective was to refresh the employee workspace and create a new, centralized café space. In addition, a new build out included open and enclosed office space to accommodate future growth. A new universal washroom was also provided as part of the updated layout.
Extensive demolition was required in the central part of the floor plan to accommodate the new layouts. Construction took place during working hours; therefore, special planning and design were needed to accommodate critical areas and workstations during construction. Hoarding was required to separate these areas and ensure the safety of occupants. The project schedule was very aggressive.
The project team was able to achieve the schedule requirements by engaging in close coordination and communication from project inception to completion.
