Allwest Furnishings Showroom and Offices

14325 - 112 Avenue Edmonton, Alberta

Allwest Commercial Furnishings Office and Showroom Allwest Commercial Furnishings is one of Alberta's largest contract furnishing companies specializing in providing innovative solutions for the office environment. They have been leaders in the business furniture industry since 1974. Allwest also has a strong commitment to Canadian manufacturers; blending this commitment with their clients' needs. One of Allwest's major Canadian manufacturing partners, Teknion, is a strong proponent of sustainable design and LEED. Teknion is a leader in sustainable furnishings and have registered their headquarters in Toronto with LEED-EB (US). They are actively working towards registering two showrooms for LEED-CI (Canada) and asked Allwest to also pursue LEED certification for their showroom in Alberta. Allwest's existing office space is 6,000 square feet, and the new showroom will be 7,000 square feet making the entire project 13,000 square feet. The architectural portion of the expansion was already underway when the decision to apply for LEED was made. Therefore LEED-CI was chosen over LEED-NC. The tenant improvements were already being dealt with as a separate project to the architectural expansion when LEED was adopted. The timing was great as the tenant improvements were just starting to be designed. The design approach was to develop a building that reflects the quality and beauty of the furniture Allwest sells within the framework of sustainable building with a mandate of achieving LEED-CI certification in Canada. Project goals include the desire to reduce consumption and wastage of materials, energy and water; maximize savings in ongoing operating costs; maximize comfort and safety of building occupants; and act as a leader in sustainable initiatives for the commercial furnishing industry in Alberta. Technologies applied include the development of high quality, low toxicity interior finishes, efficient lighting fixtures and controls, water efficient plumbing fixtures, and flexible interior spaces with the use of movable wall systems.(summary imported from CAGBC database. remove this message if edited) READ MORE
