Projects | Office Buildings

Office building and corporate campus construction is a constant activity. From offices and research labs to high end class ‘A’ company headquarters, we look after design conception, programming requirements and even interior decorating and finish selections. Recently, Reliance’s newly constructed office buildings have been LEED certified as clients become more willing to marginally increase hard construction costs in order to generate a benefit to the environment while lowering operating costs.

Working with developers, REIT’s, pension funds or intended occupants, we build some six to ten office facilities every year, each representing between 35,000 and 600,000 square feet of interior space and contract values between $4,000,000.00 and $200,000,000.

Bell Canada Head Office 2009  |  1,850,000 sf
Contract delivery :
Design Build Mechanical, Fixed Price
This project is the Corporate Headquarters for Canada's national phone carrier. Reliance's mandate began prior to the selection of the consulting engineers, with Reliance acting as master team leader and design-builder. All budgeting, scoping and value engineering was performed by Reliance prior to the completion of design drawings. Initially, Reliance's mandate included the construction of 1,200,000 square feet of gross constructed area of building and a tenant fit up of 570,000 square feet, to be completed within an 18 month fast-track schedule. In August of 2007, Reliance's mandate was increased to include Phase II, consisting of an additional 440,000 square feet of gross constructed area, containing 200,000 square feet of below grade parking and 240,000 square feet of additional finished space above grade. The project was designed as a LEED certified (Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design) campus site for 4,600 employees, comprising three architectural precast/curtain wall office buildings of 4, 5 and 8 storeys all interconnected by glazed atriums for Phase I, and two precast/curtain wall buildings of 5 and 3 storeys interconnected by an atrium for Phase II. The ground floors are designed to include retail spaces replicating a city core environment surrounded by a fully landscaped interior courtyard of 200,000 square feet complete with walking paths and an outdoor amphitheater. The complex also includes a 2 storey cafeteria for phase I and a 9,000 square foot cafeteria for Phase II, a gym and spa, a day care center, 3 atriums of 3 and 4 storeys, 27 elevators, 20,000 square feet of state of the art conference and training center space, high level security systems and an elaborate automated temperature and environmental control system. Parking for 2,150 cars, totaling 800,000 square feet, is constructed underneath the entire campus.

These twelve office buildings featuring class A office fit-ups averaging over 60,000 square feet each, were built between 1993 and 2002 for Liberty Sites Inc. Each structure’s exterior and interior design are unique and were constructed using select materials and finishes, making these facilities some of the most sought-after office space components in Montreal and a benchmark for comparison for new suburban office buildings. In addition to completion of each building’s core and shell for Liberty, Reliance successfully completed tenant fit-ups for clients such as Sony, Motorola, Simmonds, Consoltex, Bell Mobility, Rhone-Poulec Rorer, Robin Hood, Abbott Laboratories, Pitney Bowes, ABB and Medis.

Over the course of 7 consecutive years, Reliance formed an integral part of the project team acting as General Contractor for Ericsson’s North American Research and Development Center. Once completed, Reliance had built over 550,000 square feet of new construction, consisting of 4 buildings and had completely renovated 250,000 square feet of existing space. Each building included separate underground parking linked by underground tunnels. All office areas were constructed to Class ‘A’ specifications and included details such an open atrium, a cafeteria with a full commercial kitchen and recreational facilities. All phases of the project were executed on a fast track basis.
