Project Description

When Wolseley Canada, one of North America’s largest plumbing, HVAC, and fire-suppression wholesalers wanted to add another location in Coquitlam, they called Highlands.  The Highlands team helped Wolseley in estimating construction costs on a number of properties, enabling them to select a facility that could be opened quickly and with a limited budget.  Then, the Highlands design team took over, creating a design that achieved Wolseley’s functional goals for the space, while being supporting of their national branding guidelines.  Work commenced in October 2017, with completion in January 2018.  This project involved creating a 26′ high demising wall in the middle of the existing warehouse space, the demolition of the front offices, and the finishing of the space to enable a 3800 SF showroom with new office space, washrooms, coffee bar, and flooring.  Despite a number of challenges and changes along the way, the project was completed on schedule, and on budget!
