One Victoria: Summer 2014 Update
An update from the One Victoria Condominium Sales and Customer Service Team:
Over the hoarding it rises! In early July, One Victoria started to creep over the construction fencing and has now progressed to the pouring of the 2nd floor/mezzanine columns and walls. The floor of the 2nd storey residential suites has now been poured and the ground floor retail component is completely defined.
On any given day, there are approximately 40 trade contractors on site with the majority of them focused on the formwork. To date, nearly 5,000 cubic meters of concrete have been poured! Not bad, but a lot more coming. The entire superstructure should be in place by spring of 2015 based on the current schedule.
On the forming front, Dominion Forming Inc. is carrying the load. With approximately 25 – 30 tradesmen on site, they are in charge of setting up forms, facilitating concrete pours, stripping forms, and continuing clean-up on floors below. Bulldog Rebar, a local company that has worked on all of Momentum’s builds, is in charge of laying and tying the rebar.
On the mechanical and electrical front, Fred Kau and O’Connor Electric have won the contracts for One Victoria. During the superstructure phase, these teams only require a couple of tradesmen each. They will ramp up considerably when the building is closed-in and the finishing work begins. Of course, as mentioned in a previous newsletter, Melloul Blamey is in charge of construction management.
We are still on target to start the colour selection process sometime in late 2014 or early 2015. We will be closing the Presentation Centre at 16 Victoria St N and opening a new selection centre at 42 Bridgeport Rd E in Waterloo.
