Spacesaver® Corporation and Spacesaver Solutions announces Straticom Planning Associates as the winner of the Fill The Gap Contest!

Spacesaver created this $20,000 storage makeover contest to give Canadian architects and interior designers the opportunity to makeover their internal design resource library.

According to Milissa Rick, Director of Marketing at Spacesaver, “This contest allowed Spacesaver to reward the efforts of Canadian architectural firms that share our products with their clients. In Spacesaver’s 40 year history, architectural firms continue to be a very important market for our products; they have a true pulse on the storage needs of their customers, and allow us to penetrate a variety of markets from libraries to hockey teams to hospitals to military bases.”

The Fill The Gap Contest kicked off at IIDEX 2011, and over the past three months, dozens of firms from all over Canada participated in the contest. Requirements for earning points towards winning the contest included visiting the Spacesaver booth at IIDEX, attending educational seminars on storage solutions sponsored by Spacesaver, bringing Spacesaver into projects that were in the planning phase, and talking about Spacesaver and the contest on such social media sites as Facebook and Twitter.

Spacesaver Solutions Inc., Toronto’s local area contractor for Spacesaver Corporation, is thrilled at the involvement and more specifically that local design firm Straticom Planning Associates won the Spacesaver $20,000 storage makeover for their resource library. Spacesaver Solutions’ principal, Michael Thompson notes, “We couldn’t be happier that Straticom won the contest; they are a very well respected firm that we have had the pleasure of working with on many projects over the years. We look forward to the storage makeover and sharing the final design with everyone!”
