In the summer of 2011 Office Interiors began looking for a new building for their business operations in Fredericton. The Imaging and Office furniture business had been servicing the area out of their location at 125 Whiting Rd., for the previous 12 years and felt a fresh start was needed. They were looking to give the business a boost by securing a location that gave them a better road side appearance and could turn their working office into more of a working showroom.
711 Woodstock Rd., was just the location they were looking for. The building had been vacant for two years and was the property of Jacques Whitford, before being bought out by Stantec. The building needed some work to get it up to grade, but with the great team of Dimensions Drafting and Design, and the new ownership group lead by Shawn Lean, they created a working environment that not only served Office Interiors well, but also provided two other leasable spaces within the property.
Office Interiors then went about doing what they do best and furnished the property utilizing the products that they sell in their business, such as; modular carpet tiles, Modular Walls, and conventional furniture throughout the building. Transforming this old building took some creative vision and a little TLC, but in the end took an old run down space and turned it into a grade A commercial building with fabulous curb appeal.
The efforts of the group did not go unnoticed by the city of Fredericton, as Shawn and the ownership group of 711 Holdings inc. was awarded the “Development Committee Award” in December of 2012. This award is in recognition of the Adaptive Reuse of Property located at 711 Woodstock Road. A location that Office Interiors Fredericton, is now proud to call home!
