VF OUTDOOR CANADA
VF Outdoor is an American company that owns about 30 brands of jeans, sports apparel, footware and bags as well as accessories for young, sports-minded customers. Among the best known brands managed by VF Outdoor are The North Face, Vans, Timberland and Wrangler.
The head office of VF Outdoor Canada Inc. was set up near Pierre-Elliot Trudeau International Airport, at 3260 Guénette Street, an industrial building that stands out from most structures of its type. The window area, ceiling height and loading docks are generous, providing for interior arrangements that are both flexible and rational.
The project was designed with particular emphasis on creating a healthy workplace meeting LEED® Canada criteria for interior commercial spaces. Various devices were installed for better management of drinking water and energy. Also, an innovative program to educate staff of sustainable development strategies was implemented by the company.
