– Maia Penco, Senior Mechanical Designer, LEED AP ID+C
Our team began working on renovation projects with the coffee retailer in 2011. Since then, working closely with Gustavson Wylie Architects, we have provided recommendations and implemented numerous designs related to energy efficient lighting, HVAC, water reduction, and sanitary waste management. We provide the retailer with a streamlined design and construction process from pre-lease reviews to post construction services. To date, we have carried out renovation projects at over 250 coffee retail locations across Western Canada.
Our client uses green building concepts as a standard practice in new construction projects, using LEED certification as a guide. Prism has worked as part of an integrated design partnership with the international coffee brand’s design and construction managers. Through that partnership, Prism’s Mechanical and Electrical teams have implemented LED lighting designs, and installed low flow water fixtures grease interceptors. To date, we have carried out new construction projects at over 50 coffee retail locations across Western Canada.
Building Strong Client Relationships
Our relationship with this client continues to evolve, bringing new opportunities and challenges for our Mechanical and Electrical teams. We design up to four stores per week and are able to do so because we have created a customized design template that has evolved with the client.
