PROJECT CHALLENGES

  1. With design consultant operating in the US, explaination and coordination of CCDC-2 vs. AIA contract methodologies was required.
  2. Many products had long lead times, manufactured in the US.
  3. Floor trenching was not possible as we could only trench 1”-2” off the slab. This presented some electrical obstacles.

OUTCOME

Project success was contingent on maintaining clear and concise lines of communication between all project team members. We sourced out Canadian equivalents for some materials, such as the movable partitions to meet Ontario Building Code (OBC). Educating the US design team on Canadian construction processes and contract obligations combined with utilizing our construction software tool exemplifies how our philosophy of "Communicate First. Construct Second" was exercised daily to ensure the occupancy date was met.
