In only two and a half months, the Special Projects Division transformed a 5,000-square-foot base building shell into a new location of the beloved fast food restaurant, Dairy Queen.
The coordination and delivery of the owner-supplied equipment drove the project’s end date and required extra attention from the project team. Weekly conference calls were conducted with both the American and Canadian suppliers to ensure that the equipment arrived on time.
The complex where the Dairy Queen is located was a separate PCL job, and this provided an opportunity for PCL to offer cost-saving solutions. The two PCL teams arranged for the concrete slab to be poured after Dairy Queen’s project team was done installing the plumbing. By delaying the pour, the project team eliminated the need to cut through the concrete slab. This proactive solution resulted in significant cost savings, time saved, and a satisfied client.
