The Rogers Sharespace project transformed a three-story, 1Msf warehouse in Brampton into Rogers’ new offices. Occupied throughout construction, the project was completed in multiple phases of roughly 80,000 to 90,000sf each. A large portion of the scope included installing under-slab mechanical and electrical work and the construction of multiple raised structural mezzanine areas with stairs and balustrades.
After completing the initial segment of work, our team began the first few phases, which included overhauling existing cafeteria space and constructing several new food islands, complete with kitchen exhaust and fire suppression systems, a green wall, and a new back-of-house food preparation area. Meanwhile, renovations to the office included the installation of new millwork, wood veneered trellis structures that span above all major corridors, movable modular walls, coffee corners, connect booths, connect zones, and phone booth meeting rooms. Along with these specialty features is a state-of-the-art audio-visual presence that can be felt throughout the space.
The Sportsnet Cafe is perhaps the most intriguing space within the office. Consisting of 7,364sf, the café is at the centre of the main building and is divided into four quadrants: the Blue Jays Café, Raptors Café, Maple Leafs Café, and the Sportsnet Café (the quadrant with the food station). Each quadrant has a floor finish that replicates the surface that team plays on, respectively. Another café, the Ted café, is approximately 30,385sf in size and has five food stations.
