In 2003, the TSX Group, owner of the largest stock exchange in Canada, hired Govan Brown for their project in the renowned Exchange Tower located in the hub of Toronto’s Financial District. Over a 10-week period, Govan Brown constructed TSX’s 8,000 square foot broadcast studio and accompanying interactive showroom centre. A large portion of our work for this project consisted of coordinating multiple third party vendors that were required to work in a small area simultaneously.

The project also incorporated a variety of unique features including a raised floor that housed an extensive amount of electrical and mechanical equipment below the broadcast area. A new ceiling system, a structural steel mezzanine above the showroom and full height 30’ glazed glass partitions were also installed. In addition, a control room was constructed, as were faceted glass railings and interactive display units to convey the modern and dynamic aesthetic of a company like the TSX

group. The TSX Broadcast Studio had a distinctive set of challenges such as its requirement for a large quantity of acoustical attributes. Govan Brown ensured the project’s fluidity and seamless workflow with the trades by holding weekly design reviews and properly coordinating with AV consul-tants. Govan Brown was privileged to work with a company with such an esteemed reputation as  the Toronto Stock Exchange.
