Spire Professional Centre

This project entailed extensive renovations to an ageing three-storey commercial building.  New exterior cladding and windows deliver a modern west-coast look while retaining the existing structure.  Upgrades included replacement of the roof and structural improvements to the upper floor.  A refinished ground level includes a renovated lobby and the creation of flexible ground-level commercial spaces, while improving access between the upper level parking and the main entrance.
