Working closely with the client, WZMH developed a design that both reflects the sophisticated CIBC Mellon brand and creates a supportive workplace for staff. CIBC Mellon’s vision and values are represented throughout, with brand colours used in room finishes, flooring, and furniture. WZMH developed comprehensive signage and wayfinding standards for CIBC Mellon that continue to be used throughout all their corporate offices in Canada.
The design provides natural daylight for all workstations, as well as collaborative staff spaces that promote connectedness and productivity. Workstations are arranged in a variety of non-traditional clusters that support collaboration in different forms and situations. Numerous meeting rooms, niches, and informal collaborative zones surround the core of the office to further encourage a team approach to work. A centrally-located kitchenette that includes a large bar counter is adjacent to an employee lounge, and a retracting glass partition between these rooms allows them to be expanded for larger corporate events. The offices accommodate more than 150 accounting, client service, operations, and related professional staff relocated from downtown.
