Last week Cisco Canada and its design and construction team were awarded the CoreNet REmmy Innovative Workplace Award (over 20,000 sq. ft.) for our newly constructed Canadian headquarters.
The REmmys recognize projects that raise the bar for real estate in Canada, bringing innovation and sustainability to the workplace. It was quite the journey, with the result being an impressive space, but the work is not done yet!
We decided to move to a new office location to accommodate future growth plans and to showcase our innovative products and services in our new Canadian headquarters. Located within easy walking distance of multiple transit modes and the downtown core, WaterPark Place (the building we selected) offered everything that we were looking for, including an Internet of Things approach to building systems that would offer flexibility in space use, and interactivity, for the foreseeable future.
