Based in Australia, Newcrest Mining is one of the world’s leading gold mining companies. Newcrest selected SCC Construction to lead the design / build team to construct their new 13,200 sf Canadian headquarters in the Oceanic Plaza, located in the heart of Vancouver’s downtown business district.

The renovated space was completely modernized with subtle design elements reflecting the connections between the business, the land, and the Indigenous peoples. Flexible work areas, breakout rooms, muti-use spaces and state of the art IT and A/V systems provide exceptional functionality for an array of business activities.

The workspace was designed with flexibility in mind, featuring adaptable work areas, designated breakout rooms, and versatile spaces that cater to various business needs. This flexibility not only enhances operational efficiency but also promotes collaboration and creativity among employees.

Design and Renovation Details

The project began with a kickoff meeting to establish goals, timelines, and expectations. Following this, the team collaborated with Demolition Impossible for the controlled demolition phase. This was crucial to clear out the existing infrastructure safely and prepare for the new layout.

Next, the focus shifted to infrastructure decommissioning, including electrical and plumbing systems. Once cleared, the framing phase commenced, where structural frameworks were meticulously installed to delineate new office areas.

With the groundwork laid, the plumbing and HVAC rough-in stages began, ensuring that essential services were integrated seamlessly into the renovated space. Simultaneously, the electrical rough-in ensured adequate power distribution throughout the office.

Throughout the project, stringent inspections were conducted after each major phase to verify compliance with safety and building regulations. This included inspections for plumbing, electrical, and framing work.

Special attention was given to critical areas such as the server room, where setup was essential to support the office’s IT infrastructure. Network implementation followed suit, ensuring robust connectivity across the premises.

The construction phases progressed with the installation of drywall, followed by taping, mudding, and sanding to achieve smooth and seamless surfaces. Painting and installation of flooring and fixtures brought aesthetic and functional elements together.

The project culminated in a series of final inspections to ensure that all systems were operational and met the client’s specifications. This included comprehensive checks of electrical, plumbing, and overall structural integrity.
