Govan Brown has joined the Structure Tone family of companies, expanding Structure Tone’s geographic reach into Canada.
“Structure Tone and Govan Brown have tremendous synergies and perfectly complement each other’s businesses and client rosters,” says Structure Tone CEO Robert Mullen. “We have been working together for over 10 years and determined that by joining forces, we’re better able to serve our clients by leveraging each other’s strengths, geographies and resources.”
Founded in 1994 in Toronto, Govan Brown is one of Canada’s national leading providers of interiors and renovation services for the corporate, retail and hospitality markets. The company’s portfolio includes such notable projects as Nordstrom in Ottawa and Toronto, MEG Energy in Calgary, Loyalty One in Toronto, CIBC Wood Gundy in Ottawa, Electronic Arts in Vancouver, Simons in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto, and the implementation of Rogers Communications’ “sharespace” offices across Canada. The 200-person firm is headquartered in Toronto and has offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Ottawa, with a joint venture office in Montreal.
“Govan Brown has spent the last 25 years becoming the top interiors contractor in Canada with an incredible body of work and company culture,” says John Brown, Govan Brown partner. “We wanted to ensure the next 25 years would be just as successful, and what better way to do that than to partner with a firm that is extremely similar to ours and shares our processes, values and client-focused approach. The move also exposes our staff to the resources, career opportunities and other benefits of being part of a larger organization.”
Govan Brown will retain its name, and its current leaders (Jon Taylor, John Brown and Ralph Govan) will retain a share of ownership in the company and maintain their roles as the senior management team of the business.
