WELL at Scale
The new Teknion showroom is located in downtown Toronto; located on the 10th floor within a base building which received a LEED Core & Shell Gold certification under the Canada Green Building Council and Toronto and achieved a WELL Certified Silver in May 2017.
The showroom space was designed to meet Teknion's primary commitment to create a safe and healthy work place for their sales staff and showcase their products. The space offers high ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows around the entire building perimeter. The design includes an open concept office to accommodate 10 full‐time equivalent occupants, which features open showroom space, collaborative/breakout seating, meeting rooms and small kitchen area.
A healthy and productive work place is promoted by maximizing views to the exterior, limiting use of products with high‐VOCs, and increasing occupant controllability of systems for lighting, temperature and ventilation. The design is also environmentally responsible by implementing recycled/ local content materials & resources, and energy efficiency through the selected mechanical and electrical equipment.
Teknion recognized the impact that the WELL Building Standard would have on the design community and manufacturing industry as early as 2013, when WELL v1 was still in its pilot phase. Since then, Ecoworks has been has cultivated a partnership as the WELL Consultant for six Teknion showrooms locations including: Toronto, Dallas, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles & New York City.
