Description

Construction of the Arbutus Apartments, a five-storey, energy-efficient multi-residential building located in Sechelt (Port Stalashen), British Columbia, that includes 46 rental units and condos, common areas and underground parking.

 

Features

Numerous challenges
Coordinating the delivery of steel components was a major challenge on this project, as this location can only be reached by ferry.

Also, local labor was somewhat more limited due to its location, so the general contractor/owner hired Canam to handle the project.

Very tight manufacturing and erection schedules
Downpour during this period slowed the construction speed and made the site more dangerous. More stringent health and safety measures were therefore taken.

Area: 61,550 ft.2 (5,718.2 m2)
