Designed by Figurr Architects Collective
From the architects:
The design blends modern workplace elements with warm textures and natural light to create a space brimming with creativity.
Located in Barrhaven, Ontario, a suburb of Ottawa, and close to a growing community, Caivan / ABIC's new 4645.152m² headquarters and manufacturing plant supports the company's long-term vision of creating a modern work environment for their employees, and a dynamic new space to support the homeowner journey and their expanding community offerings.
The office is the second phase of a multi-phased construction project.
Phase one, also designed by Figurr Architects Collective, was a fast-tracked fabrication facility that houses innovative robotic fabrication systems.
That new approach builds sustainable, prefabricated residential home panels for Caivan’s home-building business.
Phase two, a new two-level headquarters, includes administrative spaces, a public sales centre, a design centre, an 'experience centre,' a reception area, a town hall atrium, a boardroom, meeting rooms, a combination of open and closed office spaces, a series of kitchenettes throughout the building to support the team, and touchpoints where the team can come together for informal collaboration and conversation.
An individual element of this design is the town hall atrium, which links all of Caivan's internal community, including sales, the design centre, fabrication, and administration.
