Victory Activity Based Office Fit-Up

VRA & RIDI services were from pre-design analysis of client functional requirements, through to contract documents and contract administration.

Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) and Shared Services Canada (SSC) relocated their staff to a consolidated workplace that is designed to support a variety of activity-based functions to better meet the Departments’ mandates. The goal of the project is to assess work activities of their staff, identify functional and operational requirements, combine them into Activity Based Workplace (ABW) Functional Program and design a diverse workplace.

The activity-based workplace provides unassigned and assigned work points based upon task typologies in a variety of solutions, furniture types and configurations. A modern open work environment also respects employees’ need for acoustic and visual privacy, whether they are of an individual nature, collaborative, private or social. Activity-based work points leverage mobility, and inspire engagement, creativity and innovation. A workplace that supports the client’s and employees’ work culture and environment vision, where information and collaboration is available to employees in any place, at any time, without requirement for paper-based processes or records, to the greatest extent possible.
