Compugen Continued from page B11
The client had some very specific IT re- quirements including a computer room and fibre optic to the site. As Lackner recalls “…those two components were addressed as highly important – it’s primary to their business. Barker Business Park has fibre optic running to the site which is one of the many selling features of the development. As for Compugen’s computer room, I was able to work with our own mission-critical group within Urbacon to design-build to a room that was highly functional and put emphasis on the importance of this area. We presented the client to a gas-release fire suppression system as part of their overall scheme which includes back-up generators and specific security systems.” Lackner and her team have worked closely and collaboratively with Compu- gen’s interiors designer. Adaptability has been a key attribute through this phase as the client is making changes in effort to cre- ate the optimum space that will be in place for many years. “This is a great opportunity for them to put in all the pieces they want…to build a superior workplace. It’s been fun to work with them and helping
them determine what works best for them today and will allow them the flexibility to make changes as their business changes” adds Lackner.
The new facility includes state-of-the-
art offices, warehouse, national call centre and technology lab space, Compugen says in a news release. Compugen’s investment in the new facility is a response to the sig- nificant growth that the company has gen- erated during the past few years, almost doubling its staff complement, widening its national network of branch sales and serv- ice locations, and expanding key areas of its business.
“Our growth and new business initia- tives required expanded and upgraded of- fice, laboratories and operations facilities, says Harry Zareck, Compugen’s president and CEO. “We have been a proud part of the Richmond Hill business community for many years and are pleased to continue this partnership with the Town and with York Region.”
Lackner adds “this is why our integrated model works; we are able to provide our clients with solutions that address THEIR needs. From conceptual idea, land acquisi- tion, design-build right up to move in, we are at their side through every step. It’s the complete package”.

Dol Turf Continued from page B10
Engineers from the MMM Group, MJS Consultants and Terraprobe worked with Dol Turf in this Design/Build project and it’s unique drainage design. “We’ve built dozens of fields of synthetic and high performance natural fields over the years, but this one was challenging be-
cause there was no real blueprint to work from,” Pavely said. “We put our all our heads together and generated solutions. We couldn’t go out and model the work on something that had been done elsewhere.” “Fortunately”, said Roddis, “everyone pulled together to complete the work on schedule and within budget. The sub trades, our team, consultants and the city were all pulling in the same direction. On reflection, everyone’s pretty proud of the project.”
