Ottawa Project Update March 2017 Rob Ward

Project Ambassadors:

I’m happy to share that the Ambassador role has been hugely successful! Our Ottawa Ambassadors are taking their roles to heart and have already made a significant contribution to the project and its success. It has given the employees a voice and conduit to share their ideas and feedback on the project. So far the Ambassadors have played a pivotal role providing input on:

1. Workstation styles

2. Furniture style and layout

3. Wink wall locations

4. Art and graphics for the spaces

5. The construction schedule and phasing

6. Move logistics and planning

Please continue to share any feedback or concerns you have with your ambassador.

Construction Schedule:

Construction for the project will take place over two 10-12 week phases with the sixth floor completed first, followed by seven, finally consolidation from the ninth floor onto six and seven.

  • Phase 1 has begun and will run through early May;
  • Phase 2 will start early May and run through the end July.
  • We will continue to share key milestones of the schedule
  • Design is complete, as are furniture selections, AV and IT components.

Move Management:

We will be partnering closely with the Ambassadors to ensure the seating locations are strategic, complementary and allow for synergies between the teams. That will be completed by April.

Furniture: We selected furniture that is local, modern and stylish. In addition, we paid specific attention to furniture pieces that would help with noise and acoustics in the space.

Think Global - Act Local!

The project team focused on sourcing locally to promote local business and lower our carbon footprint. Solid wood pieces crafted locally speak to these initiatives and will adorn the 6 & 7 floor

QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS.....Please feel free to reach out to your Ambassador or myself if you have any questions.
