MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Choice Hotels Canada celebrated the move to its new Canadian corporate office in Mississauga, Ont. last week. Located at the Spectrum SQ development, the new space is LEED Gold certified and houses approximately 43 members of the brand’s corporate team.
Media and vendors were given guided tours of the space by members of the Choice Canada team during last Thursday’s open house, which included a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“The opening of our new LEED Gold corporate office is the beginning of an exciting chapter for Choice Hotels Canada,” says Brian Leon, managing director, Choice Hotels Canada. “This move symbolizes our evolution with a collaborative space that truly reflects our brand, culture and innovative spirit.”
Spectrum SQ is a 1.3-million-sq.-ft. LEED Gold office campus — one of the most advanced sustainable buildings in Canada. Choice’s new space features full-height glazing on the windows to promote natural light and views, as well as operable windows to provide supplemental natural ventilation. Raised floor air conditioning and individual controls pump fresh air into the office and increase employee comfort.
Connectivity features front-and-centre in the high-performance office space, including integrated scheduling software and a “virtual receptionist” that sends email alerts to Choice staff when a visitor signs in. Automated climate-control systems control the window shades and interior temperature.
