In 2007, KPMG retained Govan Brown as their construction managers to oversee the build-out of their new office in the newly constructed Bay-Adelaide Centre. KPMG was to be the anchor tenant of the new tower and leased 11 floors for their corporate offices amounting to roughly 304,000 square feet of space. Since the building was still in base-building form, we had two years to complete the pre-construction phase while also partnering with the landlord and base building contractor to outfit KPMG’s space with elements specific to their space. The KPMG offices were composed of, initially, nine office floors and one facilities floor. Upon completion of the project, KPMG retained our services once more to finish an extra floor. The most intricate of the 11 total floors was the facilities level which demanded much of our attention. Major mechanical and electrical work was required to outfit the facilities area with the compulsory elements such as a mailroom, print room, staff lounge and IT service room.
