Sawchuk: Since 1981 building excellence

Creekside Landing, Kelowna BC

  Completed in 2008, in just 14 months, this 85,000 ft2 facility was our third project of this nature for our client. The ground floor consists of 70 care suites, broken up into 10 neighbourhoods, each with their own kitchen and lounge areas for the residents. The second floor comprises 38 assisted living suites in 4 wings, with an outdoor balcony, wellness and music areas, lounge, servery and dining areas.

Dealing with poor soils, an artesian well, and a building site placed directly on the minimum setback from Vernon Creek were just some of the unique challenges faced on this build. By working closely with the consulting team as well as choosing, managing and monitoring the appropriate sub-contractors, all stakeholder interests were ensured and all environmental considerations appropriately addressed.

Committing to an extremely tight schedule and a fixed price for construction in arguably the most volatile construction market of the last decade were additional benefits we were able to offer this owner. By being able to rely on our reputation in the industry and long track record of dealing professionally with our sub-contractors, we successfully met our objectives.
