An update from the One Victoria Condominium Sales and Customer Service Team:
Stay warm! If you are to believe Wiarton Willie, we’re less than a month away from springtime. Now that’s hard to fathom when we’re breaking daily temperature lows in the neighbourhood of -35 degrees Celsius.
Obviously, the harsh temperatures over the past few weeks have impacted productivity on the site. But we’ll take the good with the bad – the weather prior to the New Year’s was quite cooperative. The construction schedule still shows completion of the superstructure in early May. By then, the interior finishing teams will be going full tilt as we continue to push for late 2015 occupancy.
The forming crews have now poured over 10,000 cubic metres of concrete. While an impressive stat, there is plenty of onsite activity that doesn’t involve pouring concrete. The precast brick panels are now going up around the residential suites on King and Victoria – and they look incredible. Inside the corridors, masons are beginning to place block walls (on milder days) and the steel stud crews continue to frame out suites. All the while, mechanical and electrical crews follow in behind to work on rough-ins. On a normal day, there are now +- 70 total workers on site.
It has been a real pleasure seeing everyone again over the past month as we work through your suite selections. Feedback on the process has been great so far as we near the halfway point. We sincerely hope that you enjoy making your colour choices and that the new selection software has improved the experience.
