Hamilton, ON

Westinghouse HQ

An exciting project is now underway, breathing life back into the Canadian Westinghouse Company Headquarters, originally constructed in 1917.

Re-imagined into a seven-storey, modern office environment, the new Westinghouse Headquarters building will become the HQ for a whole new generation of Hamilton businesses investing in the future of the City. The building has sat empty since the mid ‘80s, yet it remains a beautiful example of Classical Revival style. After years of neglect, we seek to bring it back to its original luster, featuring its brick walls and stone accents, windows surrounds and keystones. The interior fit outs will be left to the tenants, with the intent of retaining the building’s strong design connection to the City and its authentic feel.

The current design, still underway, is specifically driven by the principles of sustainability including environmental, economic and social. We have placed an emphasis on barrier free design, the integration of bike storage and facilities which support and encourage commuting, and we continue to explore features such as solar power.
