When Thalmic Labs tripled their size they knew they were going to need a new large home for their growing company. Wanting to remain in walking distance, as well as contribute to the downtown revitalization, the choice to re-purpose the former Schreiter’s building into Thalmic’s New Headquarters was an easy one for owners Stephen Lake, Matthew Bailey, and Aaron Grant.
“The building we chose is located at 27 Gaukel St, right next to our current office. It has three floors — approximately 26,000 square feet of new space. It’s over 124 years old and was formerly the home of Schreiter’s Furniture; a furniture company founded in Boutzin, Germany, all the way back in 1873.” Stephen Lake
“Our new office is an open format, but has separate glass-walled team rooms and quiet breakout rooms throughout.” Stephen Lake
“We’ve also chosen to invest in a common area that hosts our weekly all-hands meetings, and will allow us to host selected external and community events. In the past we’ve hosted community groups such as Girl Geek WR and speakers such as Chris Hadfield, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Minister Navdeep Bains.” Stephen Lake
