Design Home Gift & Paper Inc. is a leading Canadian sales agency, offering a complete blend of coordinated gift, housewares, furniture, fashion accessories, home & garden, personal care, trend & lifestyle, and stationary products including 28 brands and over 90,000 SKU’s. Design Home maintains three permanent showrooms in Toronto, and in order to keep pace with their substantial growth, they contracted Ritestart to help build a new 18,000 sq. ft. corporate showroom complete with bistro, lounge and meeting spaces. The new showroom will be located at their existing facility in Mississauga (7580 Bath Road). Ritestart performed the requisite 2-storey addition which was completed in Summer of 2020.
The project will include new site services, asphalt parking lot, concrete footing and masonry foundation walls. Structural steel construction complete with stucco cladding was performed, as well as installation of an elevator. We have built barrier free washrooms, kitchen & dining area, administration area and showroom spaces. The building will be accessed through a new curtainwall system with complex lighting, glazing, and structural elements to display the Design Home signage. Arch-Tech Design Group is the consultant on this project.
“I am the President at Design Home Gift & Paper Inc. that is responsible for overseeing the 18,000 Square-Foot, 2 Level expansion of our existing Mississauga facility. Ritestart has had strong lines of communication throughout the project, have been able to address and rectify issues as they become apparent, and have proven themselves capable of ensuring the work completed is done to a high standard. It is a pleasure working with Ritestart Limited, and we are happy to endorse working with them on future projects.” – Jay Djang, President, Design Home Gift & Paper Inc.
