Diagnostics Services Manitoba requested a design-build approach to complete an 8,700 square foot office renovation within an expedited timeline and modest budget. We acquired this project through a Request for Proposal process, partnering with Govan Brown & Associates for the design-build approach to deliver a timely, inexpensive scope of work that met Diagnostics Services Manitoba’s vision.
To start, we subdivided the space into three zones: zone one became an interior public space with new materials, finishes, furniture and design concepts. Zone one also established guidelines for the remainder of the area, ensuring a cohesive feeling throughout the office. We selected a neutral palette for the space, which we offset with vibrant colours in the office, helping to rejuvenate and bring energy into the space. As Diagnostics Services Manitoba's office looks onto Downtown Winnipeg, we emphasized the large exterior windows with dark paint, allowing the city's skyline to become the backdrop for office life and culture for its staff.
Our scope of services included implementing a space plan, conducting a building code review, developing the schematic design, tendering construction documents and permits, and performing contract administration.
