Sawchuk: Since 1981 building excellence


  This 2003 project was a public works project which included a pyramid-shaped open air pavilion with timber frame construction, extensive use of natural stone pavers and 35' tall peeled log centre columns.

The project also included a craftsmen style caretakers residence and a separate public washroom building and extension of utilities from existing services .5 km from site.

Portions of this project were situated on solid rock and a significant amount of rock removal was required.

Setting up the pyramid shaped pavilion structure posed some challenges as the hip beam timbers were 45' long and were connected to two 24" diameter x 35' high peeled log centre supports.
