Size: 27,000 sq. ft. – Calgary
34,000 sq. ft – Edmonton
Location: Barclay Centre
TD Tower, Edmonton
 

Challenge:

This project required the consolidation of multiple entities into two offices; one in Calgary and one in Edmonton. Shearer was engaged to bring about a cultural shift into the organization, with the intent to re-organize and implement process improvements through the programming and design of the space.

 

Solution:

To ensure overarching needs drove the design solutions, Shearer’s workplace solutions team prioritized an extensive programming phase by encouraging employees from all three existing offices to participate and feel engaged throughout the process.
Preferred amenities were identified through discussion. Ergonomics, privacy, access to natural light, and a central café lounge were determined to be of the highest importance. An obvious division between public space was also planned.
The new space provides efficiency and flow, connectivity, and engagement for employees and public in a bright and inviting environment, evoking pride in the brand. Following completion of the Calgary office, Shearer was engaged for a twin project in Edmonton.
