Get ready Vancouver! Shopify is coming to town and is partnering with Novacom for what will be a one of a kind office space. Over 1,000 new employees will be experiencing an office location designed for them to thrive while working for a Canadian company with a worldwide presence.
The new office space will be in Bentall 4 and will be occupying four floors and over 70,000+ square feet of space. Partnering with Adamson Associates Architects and Linebox Studio, we are working together during the preconstruction phase in preparation for a construction start this summer. Our team just got home from touring Shopify’s Toronto and Ottawa office locations to get a first hand experience of their unique culture and environment.
Each office location for Shopify is a unique experience and a one-of-a-kind design. Employees are treated to work pods, collaborative spaces, and an amazing culinary and bistro set-up, giving them the spaces to do productive work and have fun while doing it. Being selected as Shopify’s Construction Manager for their Vancouver office is something that Novacom is extremely proud of, and we are thrilled to be a part of such an exciting project.
Shopify is an all-in-one commerce platform that allows companies to start, run and grow a business. Businesses on their network have supported $183 billion in global economic activity of the pass three years. Their presence in British Columbia is part of a long-term growth strategy and commitment to continuing to expand their presence across Canada.
With over our 29 years in the construction industry, we have been fortunate to work with some amazing clients. Transforming Spaces is one of our four pillars of how we live out our mission of Transforming Construction. “We believe spaces are the backdrops to life. One of the most rewarding parts of our work is seeing a design vision turned into the physical reality of a beautiful space. It’s not lost on us that not everyone gets this kind of tangible reward in their work, and it drives us to build amazing spaces that will be enjoyed for years to come.” Our partnership with Shopify exemplifies this and we look forward to sharing more updates with you as the project comes to life.
