A major renovation to this commercial building in Burnaby Heights transformed an aging near windowless single tenant building into a flexible and marketable building with up to four office suites on the upper floor and two retail spaces at street level. The renovated building supports and enhances the feeling of this neighbourhood retail street.
The building was upgraded to improve energy performance, provide enhanced accessibility with a new lift, and meet current life and fire safety requirements. The retention and thoughtful upgrading of the original solid wood structure made it possible to reuse existing building materials and lower the carbon footprint of the project. New insulation, mechanical and electrical systems provide energy efficiency. New windows and cladding refreshed the building appearance, improved the building performance and provide natural light and ventilation to all office suites.
