TORONTO (September 24, 2019) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced construction is complete on a new headquarters office building for Forest Group located at 240 Chrislea Road in Vaughan, Ontario. Ware Malcomb provided architecture, interior design, and civil engineering services for the project.

The new three-storey, 2,165 square meter office building was built adjacent to the company’s existing one-storey, 1,180 square meter office building. The ground and second floors were designed as multi-tenant office space, while the third floor was designed for Forest Group as a single tenant user. A two-storey tenant lobby features a striking staircase between floors.

A modern glass exterior with a black-on-black colour palette was designed to contrast with the existing brick office building. The new building features black-tinted, bird-friendly glazing and spandrel panel curtain walls. A glossy black-painted precast panel as well as black and red aluminum composite metal panels were also used in the exterior design.

“We strived to create an efficient building footprint while still ensuring the utmost in utility and functionality of the space,” said Frank Di Roma, Principal of Ware Malcomb’s Toronto office. “Our team worked closely with Forest Group to design a new building that would not only meet their needs, but also maximize the current and future value of their real estate investment.”

Forest Group also served as General Contractor for the project.
