The Richardson Centre Concourse retail renovation transformed the dated but useful center into a modernized state-of-the-art facility, housing everything from retail to dining to financial services. The project included upgrades to the common walkways in flooring, lighting, and architectural finishes. New storefronts provide a retail feel that offers convenient shopping. There were three additional projects added to the scope as the interest gained traction, including a new conference center that welcomes the downtown business community.
PCL's Special Projects division worked after hours and on weekends to keep the mall open during renovations. All the existing storefronts were replaced while the tenants stayed open during business hours. PCL also set up numerous cash allowances at the time of tender, and was able to return a substantial surplus to the client.
