The Deal

CertaPro Painters moved its headquarters from 12,000 SF on Greentree Road in Oaks to 31,000 SF at 2621 Van Buren Ave in Lower Providence. Scott Williams, Principal of Avison Young represented Certa Pro in their search. Sara Anderson, Senior Project Manager Avison Young served as the Owner’s Representative coordinating schedule, budget and the hiring of the AV, Security and Furniture vendors.

Certa Pro not only increased their SF substantially, but they carved out 3,700 SF for the two-story Certa City, a training center outfitted with a series of faux exterior facades and common interior spaces to train painters. Sara reached out to Rethink, having successfully completed Essity in 2018 to provide the AV and security for the space.

CertaPro is able to host 3x more training sessions per year and accommodate 5 concurrent training sessions with each room holding up to 70 professionals at a time.
