New Expedia® CruiseShipCenters® Corporate Headquarters Utilizes Interior Office Partition Systems from C.R. Laurence to Help Create a Vibrant and Collaborative Environment

New Offices for North America’s Largest Travel Agency Franchise use C.R. Laurence Products to Complete Interior Design Objectives Expedia® CruiseShipCenters® recently moved to a new corporate headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Designed by world-renowned architectural firm Gensler, the 28,497–square–foot facility features a nautical theme that coincides with the company’s core services.

Expedia’s goal was to create an open, collaborative environment so Gensler designed the interior with several glass–wall partition systems. C.R. Laurence–a leading manufacturer of glazing products–was selected to supply the interior glass–wall systems.

Designated conference rooms feature CRL’s 487 Series Integrated Slider. As the name states, it comes equipped with a unique, integrated top–hung sliding system that saves valuable floor space, and provides streamlined visuals. Fully–framed doors deliver enhanced acoustical privacy using minimal metal, and a narrow 1-1/2" face trim promotes natural light diffusion to help create a vibrant atmosphere.

Completing the interior office partitions plan is CRL’s Clear View Frameless Glass Wall System. Clear View features low–profile door rails that produce a contemporary all–glass aesthetic. This supports the open and collaborative design intent. Clear View comes equipped with CRL’s patented Wedge–Lock® Dry Glaze System for faster glass installation and a secure hold.

“We take pride in the ability to provide product solutions for projects of all scales,” said Lloyd Talbert, President of CRL. “From a single strip–mall opening, to complete interior partition scopes for the corporate headquarters of a Fortune 500 company, CRL can accommodate most any specification.”
