Cushman & Wakefield markham office

Cushman & Wakefield’s commitment to a LEED CI Silver designed facility and a change in corporate philosophy were integral to the design of their 13,000 sq. ft. office space. Collaboration, technology, flexibility and LEED principles drove the planning direction, along with the desire for a smaller footprint and occupancy cost. The space needed to reflect C&W’s corporate image and be representative of the commercial marketplace in which the company operates. Westparks+Associates inspiration for the design centered around access to natural light, visual expansiveness, and creation of a planning module that worked on a universal scale. The established LEED philosophy influenced all material and product selections.


Designed to be modern, efficient and comfortable while having in mind the benefit of future generations, the new headquarters of the most important employers’ construction association in the Province of Quebec, was proudly recognised as the first LEED-certified building in the Borough of Anjou, in the City of Montreal. The Association in so doing wishes to set the tone for the rest of the construction industry.
