Overview: As the Prime Consultant for this 200,000 ft2 project, we incorporated the feedback we received from a corporate culture focus study into a thoughtful interior design for the Bell Canada Westwinds Campus. The campus is one of the largest LEED Certified registered projects in Canada. Spaces in the campus that we redesigned are:
Fitness Centre – By re-purposing a parkade, we were able to create a fitness centre that includes a massage room, studio, cardio and multi-purpose area. The previous parkade entrance was transformed into a large window that provides much needed light for the underground space.
Daycare – This LEED Gold targeted project accommodates 46 preschool children, toddlers and infants. The bright and whimsical space provides an imaginative place for employee’s children to learn and grow.
Cafeteria – We merged Bell’s Executive’s vision of having a kitchen where all 1,100 staff could prepare their own food, with the food service provider’s requirements to have an affordable and safe food offering. The space incorporates a bookable social room for staff to host team building events.
In addition to the Westwinds Campus, we also completed tenant improvements to three floors of the Palliser building that Bell occupies in downtown Calgary.
“We were impressed with the quality, timely delivery and value of Toker + Associates’ work. The consistent quality of the material, ability to roll with changes driven by uncontrollable variables and management of their time (and our billing) within the original defined contract was a key strength.”
