Contract: Developer, Owner, Landlord
Cardinal Health Canada is establishing its new headquarters in Dorval and Broccolini has been mandated to carry out this design-build project. Located on Rue De l'Aviation, the new construction is a building of nearly 300,000 sq.ft and meets the operational and distribution needs of Cardinal Health Canada.
A leader in the pharmaceutical industry, Cardinal Health Canada serves as the main tenant of 2200 rue de l'Aviation. This new building consists mainly of an enormous industrial warehouse and nearly 15,000 sq.ft. of office space divided over 2 floors. During the design phase, Broccolini worked closely with the tenant to make sure that their operational and distribution needs were met.
Developed by Broccolini, their new headquarters includes a 32 ft. clear height warehouse of 277 885 sq.ft., as well as office space. This property is built according to sustainable building standards in order to achieve LEED Certification, for core and shell. Design aspects included for this purpose include a white roof, charging stations for electric vehicles, a designated carpool parking space, and a torrefied wood facade.
Among the challenges for this project is the tight deadline. The groundbreaking ceremony for the project was held in mid-February, which meant that the excavation and foundation work took place in winter conditions. In addition, the tenant occupied certain areas of the building prior to the delivery date. Broccolini was able to accommodate the tenant by carrying out the construction activities according to the needs and schedule of the tenant, thereby facilitating the delivery of their products.
As Cardinal Health Canada is a distributor for the CHUM, the building also includes an approximately 30,000 sq.ft. control room; an air pressure room which creates a dust free, sterile environment for the adequate storage of sensitive products.
The delivery date for the project was at the end of September, 2015.
