The Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) faced a monumental staffing challenge. With 100 initial employees, in three years the organization would employ 2000 people, with the final 500 added in 2010. SSDG Interiors developed an innovative master plan for the 180,000sf headquarters in order to maximize efficiency, manage rapid growth, and integrate health and sustainability by achieving LEED-CI Gold certification. The resulting spaces are predominately open with natural light, bold color accents and a dynamic aesthetic that builds team spirit and inspires staff and visitors.

what our clients are saying
SSDG developed a strategic master plan for VANOC’s Campus 2010, which enabled us to maximize the efficient use of space while minimizing lease and operating costs. The efficiency and flexibility of the space standards and planning was crucial to VANOC’s success in managing our rapid growth from under 100 to nearly 2000 in less than three years without compromising on our Culture, Vision, Mission, Values and One Team concept.
