Company given mandate to maintain, monitor and support base building
network for PwC Tower
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 15, 2012 /CNW/ - EllisDon announced today the
award of its first Managed Services contract. The work is being done
at PwC Tower, a 650,000 square foot office tower that is owned by the
British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (bcIMC). Located in
Toronto's Southcore Financial District at 18 York Street, the project
was built by EllisDon and was completed in August 2011.
The PwC Tower is considered one of Canada's most advanced IP networked
commercial buildings, as it is one of the first commercial towers in
North America to feature a unified base building network. This means
that all base building systems, including security, power metering and
lighting, are using the unified IP Network.
EllisDon's Managed Services group was engaged to provide comprehensive
maintenance and monitoring of this network, in order to ensure the
seamless operation of the building. The group will provide 24/7
monitoring and support of the network, that includes a single point of
accountability for customer requests and incident management.
The Managed Services group was created in January of 2012 as a
complement to the company's Information & Communication Technology and
Facilities Management groups. Through their engagement, the Managed
Services team provides ongoing system and technology support to
property managers and building owners with the objective of leveraging
the advanced technological solutions that are being deployed within the
Robert Barnes, EllisDon's Director of Managed Services, talks about the
importance of this win for the company: "This is a huge win for
EllisDon and the Managed Services team," says Barnes. "We are not just
handing the keys over and walking away once core construction is
complete, but rather, we are systematically implementing a strategy
from the start of occupancy to ensure seamless operation of a building
throughout its lifecycle."
EllisDon is an employee-owned construction services company, with
revenues in excess of $2.7 billion annually, which delivers
construction expertise to clients throughout the world. The company
