Desjardins Securities (DS) is a Desjardins Group subsidiary specializing in securities brokerage. It offers a wide range of products and investment services to individuals, institutional investors and corporations. Over one-hundred and fifty brokers/traders work in its new office in Montreal’s Windsor Complex. DS, which is located in a four storey atrium, wanted to create a "trading floor" type environment in compliance with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) regulations from the U.S. Green Council. For this important project, DS required that trading desks met the brokers’ needs while complying with the environmental values of the corporation. Following a tendering process among major specialized furniture manufacturers, Sustema was awarded the contract to undertake the project, largely because of the high quality of its products and its cutting-edge expertise.
