Prompted by industrial growth, outstanding architects, excellent steel, glass and aluminium suppliers plus interesting projects, seele set up a new office in Toronto last year.
Business development measures are still progressing, but the Toronto team is already busy working on two projects acquired by the new office.
The installation of 570t of structural steelwork for the Brookfield Place project in Calgary began in November. This will be joined by about 7,000sqm of steel-glass and aluminium-glass façades over the coming year.
The West Block Rehabilitation Project in Ottawa, part of the Canadian Parliament modernisation scheme, involved the building of a full-size visual mock-up, which really impressed our client. Initial preparations for installating the steelwork have begun on site. The installation of the glass is scheduled for the summer of 2016.
Both projects should be completed by late 2016/early 2017.
