APA Facade Systems have teamed up with Flynn Group of Companies in Canada to work on the new Amazon offices in Dunsmuir, Vancouver. This will be Amazon’s second office in downtown Vancouver adding about 1,000 new workers to its current workforce of more than 1,800 people in B.C.
This beautiful building is designed by B+H Architects. Their design for 402 Dunsmuir aligns with the city’s ambitions of attracting North America’s top tech and entrepreneurial talent. Located at the heart of downtown Vancouver just steps from historic Gastown District, this home for a Global Tech Firm is specifically designed for its anchor tenant, elevating the city’s position in a highly competitive and constantly evolving sector.
The ground floor will feature retail opportunities with three further floors dedicated to spacious office space. The second floor consists of 6,600 square feet of space and will include conference and fitness facilities. Architecturally, the building’s thick mullions are meant to emulate classic warehouse design.
“Decidedly industrial in its design vernacular, the vision for the project is inspired by urban lofts and industrial conversions, which are commonplace in the city, yet the building will provide amenities and efficiencies that older retrofits simply cannot. Planning, process and technology are utilized to their fullest potential as the project responds to Canada’s vision for smart, better and greener communities.” B+ H Architects.
APA manufactured over two hundred of our Triple Glazed TB SG Concealed Frame Vents (CFV) for this 152,290 ft² project, which is targeting LEED® Gold certification.
