Canon Canada recently broke ground on its new Canadian Headquarters in Brampton.
The new headquarters, located at the corner of Mississauga Rd. and Steeles Ave. W., will replace the company’s current office in Mississauga, which has been its home since 1984, according to a statement.
Construction on the five-storey state-of-the-art building is expected to complete by December 2015.
“Our vision for Canon Canada’s headquarters goes beyond being an infrastructure investment or a building where our employees work,” Canon Canada president and CEO Ted Egawa said. “We want our new headquarters to become a community for our employees and for our customers, which aligns with our Kyosei philosophy, which means harmoniously living and working together for the common good.”
Canon Canada seeks to achieve Gold certification for its new headquarters under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental design (LEED) rating system. Sustainable design elements planned include: the incorporation of lots of natural light, energy-efficient equipment and collecting rain water for reuse.
Architectural firm Moriyama & Teshima has designed the new building.
