Client: Royal Bank of Canada Architect/Engineer: Stantec/HH Angus Mechanical Contract Value: $8,000,000 Size: 205,000 sq. ft. Completion: 2013
The 180 Wellington Refresh project (in Toronto) was a complete renovation and upgrade of an existing 12 storey building for the Royal Bank of Canada.
The project had strict timelines for occupancy, as such the project was broken into four phases. Onyx worked closely with all parties to develop a workable schedule. Early schedule and site coordination meeting were crucial to mitigate the risk of schedule extensions. This helped achieve critical milestones, and enabled the construction team to complete the build prior to the hard tenant move in date.
The project included all new perimeter heating and cooling, upgrades to the primary air handling systems including a new humidification system, new fuel oil system for the emergency generator, a new building automation system, and a new Tim Hortons. Each floor contained a mini data room, so the need to preserver uninterrupted power supply during renovation was essential.
The building was commissioned to Level 5 – Integrated Systems Testing (IST).The project was built to LEED GOLD CERTIFICATION. It included a 205,000 sq’ office fit-out work once the building upgrades were completed. From skeleton to completion, the project was successful delivered on time.
