Can confirm to a degree. We had a client look at taking the nearly the entire building last summer until the deal feel apart last minute. Jacobs leases it with some floor under a long term and others having a right to terminate starting next year. We toured the building multiple times and at least two floors are 100% empty.

Any chance you can elaborate? We've heard rumours of a major transaction in the works down in Quarry Park....

I know my group will be processing 600+ new hires for that, no word on how many terminations will come our way.

600+ new hires?
Was that a mistype?

Or is this the transition of remaining CPC staff to Cenovus?


FTR I have no clue how many CPC or any other O&G companies or other industries remaining staff there are here in Calgary after all the publicized (and under the radar terminations) over the past couple years.

I would actually do/suggest the opposite and invite that ### for an interview. There is no job at the end, that's clear to us and will be eventually clear to the person of interest. My philosophy is to slap back twice as hard. Of course not in every situation, but in this particular one, I would.

You have the time and internal resources to waste interviewing a person you know you will never hire, out of spite?

Well, like I said, doesn't apply to every situation. Shermanator, how badly do you hate this ###?

I've heard through the grapevine that now that space downtown is much cheaper a lot of the companies that are outside the core are looking to move back in. Not sure if that's the case with Jacobs or not.
