The new Head Office for the Family and Children's Services of Guelph and Wellington County (FCSGWC) was completed in 2012. The space is located in a renovated one storey shopping mall built in the 1960's. The challenge in the design was to accommodate the programmatic need of the client in a very restrictive building footprint as well as to create a new expression for the Head Office along a non-descript commercial street. The exterior renovation work included new windows, canopies, metal cladding, curtain wall and new roofing. The interior work included new open and private offices, staff facilities, meeting rooms and lobby space combined with new lighting, ceilings systems as well as mechanical and electrical services. Our services included full architectural, mechanical, electrical, structural and interior design services including furniture selection.
