Intuit Canada has built a reputation of being an exceptional place to work. The company’s continuous commitment to their staff’s wellbeing is demonstrated in their comfortable, flexible, and supportive buildings and spaces.
Intuit asked our team to design and deliver a new office building and call centre for 500 employees in seven months. The Headquarters contain not only office spaces, but special amenities for company employees, including a gymnasium, fitness centre, cafeteria, and outdoor patios and seating areas. The building is kind to the environment, sustainable now and into the future.
PASSIVE, SUSTAINABLE, INTEGRATED
The Intuit Canada Headquarters saves an average of $65 000 in energy costs. Nearly 100% of the building’s interior lighting is indirect, harvesting natural daylight, and resulting in the total required wattage of the building being less than half the amount required for the average office building. An innovative underfloor air system allows for occupant comfort throughout the building, which not only reduces energy costs, but allows for flexibility and ready reconfiguration of the floor plan.
