This project included multiple sites and units across the city of Edmonton - 16 properties, 160 new water tanks, and 179 new furnaces. Our team completed the work on a tight timeline. We used a phased approach to estimating and scoping that would allow us to start on a unit-by-unit basis in order to hit the crucial timeline.

The renovation scope of this project included interior apartment and common area renewal; parking lot maintenance and replacement; trim replacement and painting; landscaping; furnace and hot water tank replacement; roofing repairs; and exterior cladding replacement. Demolition and asbestos abatement were also required.
Supply chain issues were an unexpected challenge. But, our mechanical contractors put significant effort into procuring the 179 furnaces and 160 water tanks so they could be installed according to schedule, minimizing disruption for residents.
During preconstruction, our team performed site a review with HomeEd to establish areas of concern and cross-reference with engineering reports. We established clear scopes of work and sent to the client for approval.
This project was awarded late in August, and there was an extremely compressed timeline to complete this work. Our initial mobilization occurred in September with only one property and four workers. As the scopes of work were approved for additional properties, they were added accordingly. At the project’s height, we were tasked to coordinate work on 16 sites, while overseeing the budget and keeping an accurate forecast for this complex maintenance and renewal program.
We used integrated project delivery (IPD) methodology for this multi-site maintenance and renewal projects. Meaning we included regular cost and forecast reviews with HomeEd’s representative, as well as close collaboration between field coordination staff and property managers at the occupied project sites.
Through this project, we showcased our teams ability to work under a tight timeline. With the right motivation, collaboration and expertise, projects like this can be delivered cost effectively with speed and quality for the betterment of the community.Back to projects
