This 15-floor building of the Department of Public Works and Government Services Canada, presents architecture that incorporates both heritage features as well as modern technology. The building was designed to meet the needs of the nearly 4,000 federal employees occupying the space.
Broccolini was mandated to design, develop and build 2 towers totaling over 900,000 sq.ft. of Class A office space for the Department of Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) in Gatineau. The construction of these new buildings, aimed at achieving LEED® Gold certification, would help address the government agencies' and department's lack of space.
The 15-storey, 690,000 sq.ft office tower, is located on Promenade du Portage Street in the heart of downtown Gatineau, adjacent to the PWGSC's existing building. With architecture combining heritage features and high-tech efficiency, its design allows the building to optimize the use of space while renovating and improving a significant element of the city's urban landscape, and harmonizing with the PWGSC's existing facilities.
"We had fun doing these projects. It's good to see that people like the Broccolinis still exist. I would gladly recommend Broccolini to any future client."
