Lesswood Construction has substantiallly completed building the new DSV Canada head office and logistics warehouse in Milton, the project’s architect of record Ware Malcomb said in a news release on Tuesday.
Ware Malcomb worked with Danish architect AK38 on the design of the 102,264 sq. ft. complex, the largest of its kind in the DSV – Global Transport and Logistics worldwide network.
The site includes a multi-client warehouse and distribution centre with logistics capabilities and temperature-controlled compartments and cooler areas. The attached three-storey corporate office is comprised of 4,415 sq. m. of office space including a large facility for the company’s 800 employees at the mezzanine level. “Overall, the project features a unique, modern façade and interior design with considerable thought given to materiality, sustainability and innovation,” the statement said.
“We worked closely with DSV to ensure that this new facility would seamlessly integrate DSV’s three divisions – Air and Sea, Road and Solutions – under one roof,” said Frank Di Roma, principal of Ware Malcomb’s Canada offices. “All aspects of the design focused on innovation and collaboration in order to better serve DSV’s customers and position the company for a limitless future in Canada.”
The project is seeking LEED Silver Certification from the Canada Green Building Council.
