Federation of Law Societies of Canada
Following the expiration of their lease, the Federation of Law Societies’ of Canada decided to move into a LEED-friendly location situated in the heart of the Byward tourist area. The 12,000 square foot space, comprising of the 7th and 8th floors took roughly seven months to complete and involved many unique design elements. Prior to our fit-out, the heritage building that would house FoLSoC’s new space was recently renovated by the building’s landlord. The building, free of tenants, was updated to modern standards and FoLSoC was the first new occupant of the renovated space. The importance of the pre-construction process throughout this project became evident when first encountering the building. Lack of freight elevators required the obtaining of crane permits. Meanwhile, the yielding process of finalizing the contract posed some scheduling issues. Despite these obstacles, our effective scheduling tactics enabled the client to move into their space without having to extend their current lease.
