Over the course of just three and a half months, this interior fitout transformed a 15,000-square-foot shell into a grocery store specializing in the sale of Italian and European foods.
The delivery and commissioning of the owner-supplied refrigeration equipment drove the project completion date and required extra attention to ensure the equipment was delivered on time. PCL's Special Projects division provided additional coordination services with the Italian Centre Shop’s equipment suppliers, food suppliers, and IT department to guarantee the shelves were stocked and the store was online with the two other locations when the doors opened.
The coordination and delivery of the finishes challenged the project team, as items including the café light fixtures and marble (from Italy), had long lead times. Through rigorous shop drawing reviews, approvals, and near-daily meetings with the suppliers, owners, and consultants, PCL delivered the Italian Centre Shop on time and budget.
