In the heart of Vancouver's historic Gastown, the Donohoe Living Landscapes Office presented a unique opportunity for a transformative commercial renovation. Our team, led by the talented designer Jessica Oakes, took on the challenge to revitalize this workspace, ensuring it met the modern needs of a dynamic business environment.
Scope of Work
We embarked on a comprehensive renovation journey, starting with the restructuring of the existing space. Our efforts included:
- Framing and Creating New Office Spaces: To foster a more productive and engaging work environment.
- Electrical and Plumbing Upgrades: Ensuring the office meets the latest standards in safety and efficiency.
- Installation of a New Front Door: Enhancing the aesthetic appeal and security.
- New Millwork and Furniture: Tailoring the space to the specific needs of Donohoe Living Landscapes.
- Complete Refinishing: Implementing new finishes that breathe fresh life into the office.
This project was not without its hurdles. Operating on a tight budget and timeframe, we planned each phase to maximize efficiency without compromising on quality. The office's location in a mixed-use building, surrounded by diverse businesses including an international school, required us to adopt a considerate approach:
- Limited Noise Construction: We adjusted our work methods to ensure minimal disruption to the school activities below.
- Flexible Work Schedule: To accommodate the unique setting, our team worked during evenings and weekends, demonstrating our commitment to project timelines and community respect.
The result is a beautifully updated, functional office space, even under stringent conditions. The updated Donohoe Living Landscapes Office is now a more inviting and efficient space. We're grateful for the opportunity to have worked on this project and proud of what we were able to accomplish within the given parameters.
