Sony Pictures Entertainment – Imageworks
As a long term client of Fusion Projects, Sony’s success in this market has led to multiple projects with Fusion. Fusion, along with Colliers, assisted Sony’s Global Real Estate team in analyzing several potential expansion sites.
Fusion worked closely with the client to develop plans for each of the options along with associated budgets. This crystalized Sony’s decision that Cadillac Fairview’s newly remodelled 725 Granville would be their new head office. This building was unique in offering 75,000 square feet on one floor in downtown Vancouver. Fusion reviewed the site conditions, landlord requirements and developed a strategy to meet the tight four-month timeline to build out Sony’s space while the base building was still under construction.
During the design of this new location, Sony’s space requirements increased by 50% without changing the required completion date! Fusion lead the overall management of the project, including RFP for design services, tight cost controls, IT and logistics, ultimately getting Sony in on time and on budget! The new home for Sony was designed by DIALOG and includes 13 cinemas.
The space is a tremendous showcase for Sony Pictures Entertainment and Imageworks success over the years. The studio has multiple staff areas and truly reflects the company’s personality helping Sony to attract and retain the top talent as well as clients from all over the world.
Fusion is so excited to be a partner of SPE Imageworks and wishes them all the best with their continued success!
