Norton Rose Fulbright LLP

Location: 222 Bay Street, Floors 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31, Toronto

A strike, a tight construction schedule, creating two large openings and hoisting fire shutters from street level up to the 31st floor. These were just some of the great challenges on this project where Vestacon’s experience was really put to the test, with a great result to show for it

Shutting down part of a street in downtown Toronto to hoist eight 20" long fire shutters? No problem. Norton Rose Fulbright's new office location at 222 Bay Street consists of five floors with an interconnecting stair between floors 31 and 30, custom skyfold partition, and much more. Over 35 weeks Vestacon, designers LSM and Figure3, and Consultants worked tirelessly to complete this office, planning work around a nine week-long HVAC Union strike, and managed to stay on schedule. With tons of natural light, wood and stone details, as well as local art Norton Rose Fulbright now, can greet employees and clients in style

For this project pre-ordering long-lead items, such as light fixtures, stone, glass, fire shutters, was necessary to complete the project on time. Even so, we can’t plan everything and mid-construction the HVAC Union went on a nine-week long strike. So we adapted, kept client and consultants informed, and managed to meet the planned construction completion date. Vestacon worked closely with the design team for the coordination of office fronts.
