Lordco Head Office
Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada
||IDC Value of Design Award - Excellence: Innovation in Workplace Design|
omb was commissioned by Lordco Auto Parts to provide full scale Interior Design Services for their new 46,000sf Head Office space. The Tenant Improvement spans three floors and is located in a new 377,000sf purpose-built distribution centre in Port Coquitlam, BC. To encourage connectivity and collaboration across the company, a central atrium and feature stair that spans three floors was introduced. omb coordinated with the base building architects to integrate a large skylight over the atrium to allow for light to penetrate into the centre of the floorplate. This provided a point of continuity for the interior space with a grand sense of arrival within the building.
The interior space planning was informed by the goal to provide clarity of the company’s organization and function. Training rooms, collaborative work spaces and flex areas were strategically located to maximize function and a full fitness area was included to support staff’s wellbeing. The central and generous lunch room provided opportunity for staff to congregate and a separate executive suite with a private lunch room on the top floor provided the option for uninterrupted workflow for executives. The clear and thoughtful space planning allowed for intuitive wayfinding that is supported with on brand signage and the careful selection of furniture. In an effort to further enhance the elevated brand identity, we are currently in discussions to implement a larger art and branding program in the new year.
