The design-build team that MARANT brought forward worked together under challenging conditions and was able to achieve all our facility objectives.

Tony Sanchez Controller Manager Administration, Kawasaki Canada Motors Inc.

The project was designed and constructed as a “design-build” process wherein the complete consulting team was assembled and put forward with the design proposal from the architect. The existing building envelope was totally redesigned from its original concrete pre-cast exterior to a modern, stylized design that more closely reflected the brand. The transformation process included re-cladding over the exterior concrete walls using tinted glass panels, dramatic building signage, landscaping and parking to create a visitor-friendly facility. An oversized garage entrance to accommodate the vehicle transport trucks was also constructed.

The project required significant base building structural modifications to create an office mezzanine level overlooking a new showroom, as well as a more dramatic entry door to the facility. Unique to this project was the construction of a new computer room and a specialized R & D motorcycle safety test room needed to house a proprietary “Dyno Machine.”
