RSA was expanding its GTA West office facilities by relocating to a new low-rise office development in Mississauga. MARANT was retained as construction manager for the interior fit-up scope of work, the base building construction was still ongoing and, with a fixed tenant occupancy date, an overlap with leasehold fixturing, needed to be carefully coordinated with the base building contractor due to the Ministry of Labour’s “one constructor” regulation. Occupying 172,000 sf across a total of seven floors in two bridge-connected office buildings, this LEED-CI Gold project provided the client with a highly optimized occupancy. The primary objective for the new standard was to construct a state-of-the-art office space that would provide a flexible, collaborative and engaging working environment for its staff and clientele.
A significant pre-construction phase included: muli-phased scheduling, cost estimating & tendering, constructability analysis, construction phasing program for sub-trades, and document reviews during preliminary and detailed design stages in collaboration with the architect and PM. Built within an aggressive schedule, all corporate objectives related to design intent matched strict budget parameters that were achieved to the client’s and core team’s complete satisfaction.
