Project Description

Desjardins Group is a long time client of our design firm. We work fluently in both English and French, Desjardins Group is based in Quebec.

We have designed corporate offices for this company in all their major markets. Working closely with the real estate and planning development group we have conceptualized, planned, designed, documented, budgeted and project managed their offices in new markets like Vancouver and Calgary.

They look to our team to challenge their status quo and to translate their changing culture with innovative architecture, stylized millwork and furniture solutions to support their corporate brand.

In Calgary it was key to design a space that encouraged staff collaboration and mentorship and facilitated training and learning. Stringent security was also a special consideration as some groups worked round the clock.

An open concept office space was designed with senior staff in the heart of work groups. This facilitated intuitive learning and the ‘overhearing’ of exchanges by senior staff as a training tool.
