This project is an interior conversion and fit-up of former office space on the 30th floor of a downtown high-rise, located on Front Street West in Toronto.

The design takes advantage of spectacular views over Lake Ontario. Finishes were consistent with a corporate feel appropriate for the Queen’s University Smith School of Business image. Work was completed to a high standard of quality on a very compressed schedule that utilized a Construction Manager and sequential tendering to allow work to begin prior to completion of all aspects of the design.

  • The initial phase involved fit-up of approx. 7,000 ft² and included:
  • An 80 seat tiered classroom, fully wired for “state of the art” audio/visual teaching technologies, which is convertible to a reception area and event space
  • Three video conference rooms
  • Five meeting rooms
  • Administrative office space
  • Reception area and refreshment/staging kitchen

The second phase included expansion of the suite to add:

  • A 30 seat classroom
  • Boardroom
  • Three meeting rooms
  • Student study space
  • Event kitchen

The third and final phase entails fit-up of the balance of the 30th floor comprising of 25,000 ft². The phase three program includes:

  • A second 80 seat tiered classroom
  • An additional video conference room
  • A relocated and expanded office area
  • Various staff and student meeting rooms
  • A large flexible ‘crush space’ for student study and receptions
  • Supplementary washroom facilities
  • A new ‘stand alone’ HVAC system serving the 30th floor
