Project Details

Eastern Construction is the Construction Manager for the construction of this spectacular new office building. The project consists of a 7-storey atrium and an 11-storey office tower. The project features exposed concrete ceilings, a raised flooring system for air distribution, voice, data and power cables, operable motorized windows, and automated blinds and sun shades. This platform structure is partially supported by a unique “jack”-like column system located outside the heritage building and partly by large diameter concrete-filled pipe columns threaded through the structure of the heritage building to below basement level.  This building is designed to achieve the LEED Gold Certification.
