Ground has broken on the expansion project at Electronic Arts' Burnaby Campus. DIALOG’S integrated team of architects, interior designers, landscape architects and engineers are working closely with the Turner Construction Company using the principles of lean construction to deliver a project consisting of two new office buildings. Once complete, the new buildings will hold an additional 500 to 600 employees.
The site is located north of Sanderson Way between Willingdon Avenue and Gilmore Way on a 12.57 acre site. The facilities include over 300,000 square feet of class A office space, a cafe, cafeteria, gym, over 360 parking stalls and extensive at grade end-of-trip facilities to serve users of the Gilmore Way Urban Trail. Each building contains a large atrium for natural daylighting and will be designed with a high-performance building envelope. A skybridge will connect the new building to the existing campus.
Site design features include a new urban plaza that acts as a connector through the site, an enhanced street presence on Sanderson Way, two large rain gardens, and a landscaping strategy which consists of re-establishing a green buffer. Construction is expected to be completed by Spring 2024.
