Walker Glass headquarters in Montreal, Canada, have undergone a total transformation thanks to a completely renovated work environment, including a new visitors“ entrance, reorganization of the administrative offices and the construction of an employees“ campus with a fully equipped training room. The project began with the construction of the employee campus – named “La Mez,” coming from the word “mezzanine,” which shares the same first three letters in all four of Walker“s official languages (French, English, Italian and Portuguese). The campus includes a classroom for seminars and continuing education courses, a cafeteria and a fully equipped gym. The administrative offices were also updated, with the installation of office partitions for privacy, as well as contributing to noise reduction. The faade of the closed-door offices is made with 12-mm Starphire glass featuring Walker“s Nuance custom pattern combining two acid-etched finishes. In other areas of the office, acid-etched mirror inset into the wall replaces the traditional painted gypsum board. The sales and marketing team participated in the design of the new showroom, which includes a back-lit display wall. Samples are suspended on a flexible cable system and, behind the cables, mirror strips were installed to ensure the light would cover the entire wall to accentuate the etched finishes. Renovations also included a new visitors centre which has a 16-foot high by 7-foot wide etched glass box that resembles a giant ice cube at its entrance. The box is constructed of 12-mm Starphire glass with a satin finish on both sides. The glass box also stands as the background for the building sign, featuring the Walker Glass name and the Walker Textures logo on each side. Harrison adds, “Walker is blessed with an incredible team of very productive people. Providing them all with a comfortable and stimulating workplace is the company“s way of recognizing their tireless effort and commitment to the business. We certainly hope that their new home will inspire them to continue to be the best in the industry.”
