MARINE DRIVE – BUILDING RESTORATION AND 4 UNIT BUILD-OUT

Project In Progress

Our client came to us with significant water in the basement of their multi-unit commercial building. Our team sprung into action to mobilize our network of engineers and sub-trades to diagnose the problem.

Along with significant drainage and foundation work a total remodel of the four retail spaces is underway.

MEDICAL CLINIC RENOVATION

Completed Project

Our client was looking to expand their waiting area. This required an existing office to be demolished. To do this right we needed the the proper permits, structural engineering, seismic bracing, a new bulkhead, significant sprinkler work and a brand new ceiling.

Our team leveraged our engineering relationships and brought in top of the line subcontractors to quickly turn this tenant improvement around.

The result was minimal business disruption and one happy customer.

KERRISDALE BUILDING RESTORATION

Completed Project

Our client came to us with with concerns brought up by their insurance provider. Our team compiled a detailed report of all the deficiencies on the project along with a budget for the necessary repairs.

With a solution in hand our team moved forward with the necessary structural rebuild, HVAC modernization and the associated electrical and plumbing upgrades to ensure our client’s property met and exceeded their insurance requirements.

We have also engaged with this client for continued support with their capital planning to ensure deficiencies are dealt with proactively and cost effectively.

STUDIO REMODEL

Completed Project

Our long-term client at Relic Entertainment came to us with some design and functionality issue in their studios.

​Our teams worked closely together to match our problem solving expertise with their unique needs to deliver the optimal solution.

​We still think they should develop a contractor role playing game!

DOWNTWOWN STRATA COMMON SPACE

Completed Project

​The strata approached us to overhaul their amenities room and guest suite.

​Our team understood the requirements of working near a large number of residents and developed a plan to minimize our impact.

​The success of this project turned into multiple referrals for our partner Showcase Interiors Ltd.

RBC EMERGENCY LEAK

Completed Project

The clients contacted us with an emergency leak of an underground water main affecting the bank and its property.

We learned on the fly to ensure we followed their processes to get the job done. This involved getting the necessary clearance to work in sensitive areas. Coordination between the bank manager, commercial property manager, civil engineer, security company, our subcontractors and the district of North Vancouver was central to the success of this project.

We also had to work with the banks operating schedule to avoid disruption and keep their customers safe.

To this day we support this location in all their contracting needs.

OLYMPIC CAULDRON – RICHMOND OVAL

Our team was contracted to design, supply and install the Olympic Cauldron fire feature’s gas burner and electronic ignition system to be used at the Richmond Olympic Oval.

Once we attended site, we were also contracted to work with base building mechanical engineers to tie into the main gas lines located 300 feet away from the feature site and one storey underground.

We performed all site work, passing all inspections and worked with our “A” gas fitter and Technical Safety BC to design and test the burner system to meet NFPA guidelines.

Although the project was ultimately canceled by the client prior to finalizing due to budgetary constraints, we hold out hope that they will call upon us to finish what we started in the future.
