In 2009, Buck Consultants, a Xerox company, retained Govan Brown to build-out one and a half floors of the Royal Bank Dexia building. The new offices were built with the building’s LEED standards in mind. The entire project comprised of 32,000 square feet and took approximately five months to complete. By the end of the project, we were able to deliver a fully detailed and completed space to Buck Consultants. The main design element  that

 needed  to  be tackled  in  the  Buck  project was the raised floor. As  has  been  a  trend  for many offices lately, much  of Buck’s  space  was  built  on  a  raised  floor. The raised floor, which housed an assortment of electrical  and mechanical elements, required its own  HVAC  distribution  systems  to  ensure  that  the  elements  beneath  the  floor  did  not  overheat. Further  alterations for the  access  floor included having to accommodate the porce-

lain tile floor finishes in the reception area. This aesthetic feature is a prime example of our ability to accommodate both functional and design elements in the construction of a space. Buck Consultants and Xerox as a whole have been dedicated clients of Govan Brown for many years. We were happy to deliver a project worthy of their esteemed standards.
