In the past 10 years, Govan Brown has completed many projects for this Canadian financial client across Canada. In 2009, Govan Brown was retained to complete this financial client’s premier office in Vancouver. The flagship space was re-purposed for a new initiative as part of new marketing and corporate  branding.  The  goal  of the project was to convert the existing office into  an  open  plan  space,  promoting 

 

a  team dynamic  amongst  the  staff.  The  schedule was aggressive and it was imperative that  strong  lines of communication with the client, trades and designer were maintained. Daily communication was necessary as the office was to remain operational throughout the construction process. The continued occupancy of the space necessitated a phased construction schedule. Once each part of the office was completed, it would

 

be immediately staffed and furnished. This sequenced move-in procedure shortened our construction timetable and limited disruption to our client’s staff. Our relationship with this client has been defined by quality work and collaboration. We have become one of their preferred contractors thanks to our ability to complete complex projects on time  and under budget.
