EA Sports

The Canadian headquarters of Electronic Arts Sports (EA Sports) in Burnaby, BC, originally constructed in 1998, needed complex upgrades.

Our team collaborated with EA Sports to enhance the 21,000 sq. ft. existing masonry wall running from north to south, intersecting through the main campus building. The project was completed in three phases to minimize disruptions to EA Sports business operations. It included re-cladding the masonry wall, parapet walls, and interior feature walls. Additionally, we self-performed demolition work and diverted six tons of surplus stone construction waste from the landfill by donating it to Habitat for Humanity Re-Store.

The first phase involved recladding a 9,500 sq. ft. section of the exterior wall with new stones. In the second phase, we performed recladding and re-lamination on 7,500 sq. ft. of the rooftop exterior section and identified and remediated three roof leaks of which the client and facilities manager were previously unaware. The third phase focused on recladding a 4,000 sq. ft. section of the interior wall with new stones.

Safety was prioritized for both our team and the building occupants. We erected eight-foot-tall hoarding around the site before construction began. Additionally, we collaborated with our scaffolding partners to install scaffolding tunnels with crash decks covering 50 p/sf to ensure the safety of pedestrians nearby. We also installed netting along the facility perimeter as secondary safety measures.

The team applied Lean construction principles by overlapping phases, enabling us to work on multiple areas of the wall simultaneously. Through a look-ahead system and pull planning, we devised an efficient schedule that included self-performing demolition, protection of finishes, and advance delivery of necessary materials. This resulted in the project being completed three weeks ahead of the contractual deadline.
