May 2019

Improbable Canada Inc., a video games tech company headquartered in London UK, has opened its new office studio in Edmonton, Alberta. Already occupying as a temporary solution the third floor of the 1914 Metals Building in the downtown district, the scope of work consisted of two renovation phases.

Phase I

Renovate the previously demolished second floor in order for the Improbable Team to move in.

Phase II

Demolish the 3rd floor and renovate as per construction drawings issued by ACI Architects to become the main reception floor.

As well as creating a unique concept for their image, providing boardrooms, open office layout, touchdown stations, gaming niche, community areas and washrooms on both floors, the access control and video systems installed throughout the space was critical. London’s headquarters IT/ Security team and local communication contractor were brought on board to provide adequate systems and hardware to suit requirements.

Experienced team members and specification writers were involved during design development and provided the ability to solve potential sound transfer issues from the original wood structure between the 2nd and 3rd floor. A cellulose acoustic finish was sprayed to the ceiling of the 2nd floor and a cork back luxury vinyl tile was installed on the third floor to help dampen sound transfer.
