In the Right Place, at the Right Time
Following the economic downturn in 2016, Calgary’s A-class office lease rates have dropped and vacancy has sored; MQ has taken advantage of this opportunity, like many small business, and moved into Calgary’s Downtown Core. This move positions the business for future growth, elevates staff moral, and better-represents the capacity and talents of the MQ team.
A Sign of Growth
Given the nature of MQ’s project-based work, the team size has a tendancy to fluctuate. However, over the past two years, there has been an overall growth trend for this Digital Agency; with the active projects tripling during the period of localized economic downturn. Much of the motivation for moving the MQ office is to better-enable the business for growth.
Improve Moral. Demonstrate Quality.
“We’ve spent the last five years working out of a basement suite—and we’re not slamming that, the Flamingo Block was the perfect place for our small team to set roots; but now that we’re getting recognition and awareness for the work we do, it only makes sense to elevate our presentation, to both our staff and our clients, and set the stage for the company we’re becoming.” Says CEO, Nikhil Sonpal.
The new office is located on the 17th floor of the West Tower in Sunlife Plaza. It features large windows, ample light, and more working space. The overall quality of the office better aligns with the business and MQ’s design team have added some attractive focal points that anchor a sense of pride, elegance, and value.
