Public Prosecution Service of Canada

Location:

Ottawa

Size:

55,000 sq.ft.

The Challenge:

To consolidate PPSC from multiple locations into one national headquarters and separate PPSC from the Department of Justice. Workplace 2.0 became a Government of Canada standard immediately after the final layouts were approved. To meet the new Workplace 2.0 standards, there was a need to re-profile the requirements, redistribute floors and lease reductions, and completely redesign the workplace.

The Solution:

Meredith Thatcher was selected to provide project management services to PPSC to help steer the project from requirements through to move-in over a two-year period. She structured the internal team and identified roles, responsibilities and functional authorities. Meredith was the project management liaison between the project team and many key stakeholders, including the internal stakeholder, other project team members, PWGSC, the landlord, and the consultants. Strict security requirements were adhered to during the construction, including document handling processes and floor layouts. Workplace 2.0 was implemented according to the appropriate standards and non-compliant spaces were successfully justified. The lawyers were successfully accommodated into smaller offices in alignment with the new Workplace 2.0 standards.
