Mississauga Executive centre (MEC) – Making smart strategy a reality.
Managed by Colliers International, the Mississauga Executive Centre (MEC) office campus is home to major tenants like Desjardins General Insurance, D+H, Symcor, Element Financial and RBC Dominion Securities. The buildings are connected wirelessly yet it was evident that in order to remain leading-edge, MEC needed to undertake a network upgrade to its aging technology. Enhancing the building systems meant connecting their buildings, tenants and technology – an important theme for the team and owners. The consolidation and interconnection process for all four buildings into a single network will ultimately enhance leasing capabilities and services to current tenants who expect connectivity across multiple buildings. Tasked with leading the MEC smart campus strategy – from start to finish – RYCOM overcame a number of infrastructure, government and geographical challenges to deliver measurable outcomes. They designed and implemented an exterior private fibre connection and an internal BBN to converge all building systems and act as the foundation of the smart building network. Together, the Colliers team and RYCOM, with their technology partners Cisco and BUENO, are transforming MEC into a premier smart office campus that offers enhanced tenant experiences, operational efficiencies and savings using a converged base building network paired with an analytics platform.
Acting as an extension of our team, RYCOM provides oversight and management of the network, allowing our team to sleep at night.
For One Queen Street East, RYCOM was asked to take over and assess our requirements for a Smart Building strategy to ensure the capital investments were protected and to build a reliable, scalable, property-owned asset that would support the short- and long-term requirements of our tenants and our site. They were creative in their technology solution approach and provided our site with peace of mind knowing we have a dependable and open system that will allow us to trial and implement a variety of building systems, applications and tenant amenities. Acting as an extension of our team, RYCOM provides oversight and management of the network, allowing our team to sleep at night.

RYCOM has assisted when budget challenges were brought to their attention and introduced solutions to mitigate these issues.
At both Upper Canada Mall (UCM) and Scarborough Town Centre (STC), RYCOM provided our team with a Base Building Network (BBN) solution to meet our short- and long-term needs. They walked us through the entire process from the very beginning, creating a ‘blueprint’ that mapped out each step of the design, deployment, migration of building vendors and proactive ongoing support. RYCOM has assisted when budget challenges were brought to their attention and introduced solutions to mitigate these issues. For example, developing a phased design that allowed us to build our network in phases to align with our immediate needs and budget while still preparing for future growth. The RYCOM team has always been a responsive and valuable partner to our site team…translating into successful project results and effective BBNs at both STC and UCM.
