Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Vancouver BC

PD Group provided functional requirements that allowed the separate Departments of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Environment Canada to be accommodated into the newly built 401 Burrard Street Building.

Senior executives from both departments participated, independently, in a session that identified each department’s vision for the new facility, future business objectives, preset parameters, and non-negotiable items.

Fisheries and Oceans alone implemented Enriched Front End Planning and Innovative Office Strategies, resulting in hotelling, and teaming areas. Both departments benefited from the space savings realized through locally-shared support services including lunch rooms, board rooms, reception, mail room and from co-locating the Finance and Human Resources corporate services.

The future business objectives of both departments were ultimately aligned within the resulting physical space.
