CAE is a global leader with state-of-the-art training simulation products, services and centers in over 35 countries for the civil aviation, American defense & security and healthcare markets. Their Montreal facility is renowned for its innovative virtual-to-live training solutions. With their clients’ interest having mainly transitioned to on-site services over the last few years, CAE’s management and marketing team developed a plan to shift their corporate image to better suit their mission of offering cutting-edge technology, and stimulate employee motivation. Their vision was to transform their conventional, dated-looking quarters into an open, effervescent workspace. Project management experts LEM and the team at A2DESIGN rose to the challenge and ensured that these objectives were met by developing a new, modern type of collaborative environment, with fresh, tasteful colors and materials; creatively integrating High-Performance Color Field Milliken carpet tiles in two vibrant color variants. A unique challenge for those involved in this fast-track project resided in the extreme secrecy of CAE’s processes, requiring top security measures to be observed by all trades. This translated into complex, precise procedures on all levels; from material delivery to investigated workers; highly restricted access to zones without the option to work in multiple areas at once, and office furniture often mounted only minutes after installation of the flooring. This demanding situation resulted in a stimulating, high-efficiency execution of works that changed the offices of this scientific community into an exciting workplace with renewed energy; attractive to a contemporary, motivated market, in search of top-quality products & services.
