This project consisted of a retail renovation to 180,000 square feet of mall area, including an upgrade of mechanical and electrical systems. Highlights included the installation of a curved ceiling with recessed cove lighting, state-of-the-art skylights featuring high-performance glass, escalators to replace existing stairs, a new and larger center court elevator, and renovated entrances.
The client required the mall to remain operational during construction, so PCL completed the work during night hours. With public safety at top of mind, PCL diligently ensured work areas were properly closed off at the close of each shift. To avoid inconveniencing shoppers and tenants, PCL carefully sequenced construction activities.
Skylight replacement work was a major component of this project, and inclement weather was a considerable concern to the overall schedule. PCL worked with the skylight supplier to implement protective domes over the entire working area, which provided excellent weather protection and allowed work to proceed without disruption.
