Located at the lively intersection of Yonge and Bloor Street and at the crossing of two main Toronto subway lines, this building is positioned at the base of a 430,000+ square foot class “A” office tower.
The renovations consisted of the concourse level, ground floor, and various other floors, totaling up to 100,000 square feet. The repositioning of this project will involve the remodel of the existing public and commercial area at concourse, ground, and second floors forming a street level prominence while improving pedestrian experience and alleviating the daily foot traffic congestion.
The purpose of the renovations is to redesign the concourse level to separate electrical services for future demolition of existing buildings. As a result, Symtech will be responsible for decommissioning the existing high voltage electrical room, in order to replace it with a new and improved version. In addition, Symtech will provide this project all its electrical systems, such as power distribution, emergency power, high efficient lighting, lighting controls, fire alarms, security systems, network systems, and paging systems. Symtech will carry out the extensive renovations, including demolitions and installations of all new systems, all while the existing tenants are still occupied. The Design Assist approach for this project allows for Symtech to contribute its vast experience to improve constructability, achieve efficiencies, cost savings, and ultimately add value.
