Intelerad relocates into new downtown headquarters
The company consolidates its Montreal offices into one central location with the help of JLL Canada
MONTREAL, May 31, 2019 – JLL Canada is pleased to announce that its Montreal Tenant Representation Group has advised healthcare technology firm Intelerad Medical Systems Incorporated in the relocation of its Montreal offices into one central location to bolster collaboration within the firm and offer its employees a more modern and collaborative work environment.
Intelerad, a Montreal technology success story, which currently employs approximately 400 employees, previously operating in two separate locations in downtown Montreal and Saint Laurent, has recently moved into a consolidated office space at Place Dupuis in Montreal’s downtown east submarket. The new office is located on the 12th, 14th, 15th and 16th floors of 800 Boulevard de Maisonneuve East offering spectacular 360° views of Montreal, significant amenities for the staff and convenient access to public transit. The location was identified by JLL’s Tenant Representation Group led by Bernard Lawrence and Andrew Bissett, whose team also negotiated a very favorable offer to lease and lease terms on behalf of Intelerad. After JLL performed in-depth employee demographics and real estate market analysis, the Intelerad real estate committee shortlisted six buildings to eventually select and secure the new space at Place Dupuis as its optimal location.
“We are very satisfied with both the process and outcome of our HQ real estate project managed by Bernard and his team,” comments Paul Lepage, President and CEO of Intelerad. “We appreciate that Bernard was very attentive and understanding of our needs and challenges and that his team handled a very smooth, structured and collaborative process. The purpose of this move for our company was to bring our employees together in a fantastic location, give them a stronger sense of team and pride in their workplace, and further enhance collaboration between them. We truly believe that our new HQ will help us achieve that and more.”
“The workplace has a significant impact on employee satisfaction and productivity. In Montreal’s increasingly competitive job market, providing employees with a work environment that is pleasant, stimulating and promotes collaboration is an absolute necessity. But having it also fit the company’s culture and its constraints can prove to be extremely challenging in this market,” says Bernard. “I am honoured that Intelerad trusted our team to tackle this exciting project and that we were able to find and secure a great workspace for the company. It was truly a team effort and could not have been achieved without the active involvement of the Intelerad real estate committee.” “A special thanks to Busac and Conceptum who helped us through the different phases of this complex project and contributed to making it a success.” said Michel Desgagné, CCO and executive project sponsor, Intelerad.
According to a JLL global study on the workplace, 69% of employees worldwide seek happiness in their place of work, while over 50% of respondents admit looking for a work environment that encourages creativity as well as their personal learning and development. At a time where companies rival to attract the best talent, this move should further enhance Intelerad’s attractivity and commitment to provide its employees with a thriving work environment.
