Founded in 1874, Freedom 55 Financial has a long history in the Canadian marketplace. Abbott’s team provided the Project Management and Cost Management for the major infrastructure renovation of its original headquarters in London, Ontario. As a central location for the company, construction had to be completed during working hours, adding further complexity to the project.
The 630,000 sqft. project involved the replacement of mechanical and electrical equipment supporting the complex, removing asbestos, and the complete refresh and modernization to the workplace. Abbott’s team of experts not only ensured that the project stayed on schedule and within budget but also provided innovative solutions to overcome the challenge of no swing space in an occupied building.
