Sawchuk: Since 1981 building excellence


  Completed in 2005, Lakeshore Terrace was a step up from the typical condominium building being constructed at the time. It offered granite countertops, hardwood flooring and stainless steel appliances, not as upgrades, but as the standard.

Site preparation included soils remediation to eliminate old peat deposits and other issues commonly associated with sites with high water tables which are in close proximity to Lake Okanagan. Foundation construction required minor dewatering as some footings and the elevator pit were below water.

The building is comprised of a 10,000 square foot parkade complete with suspended slab and 26 suites over a crawlspace. Exterior finishes include a mix of cultured stone, cementitious plank siding, concrete and stucco. Four of the suites have lofts which were incorporated into the roof trusses.
