Completed in 2003, this 360,000 sq. ft. shopping mall caters to the Asian community in the Vancouver area. Named after Aberdeen Harbour in Hong Kong, this destination mall has over 100 stores on 3 levels. Construction began on the redevelopment of Aberdeen Mall in 2002 and was fast-tracked to achieve an aggressive December 2003 grand opening. Pre-construction planning and construction management services were extensive and included demolition, construction of Hollybridge Way as well as sewers, sidewalks and street lighting. Aberdeen Mall is a focal point of downtown Vancouver.
Phase 1 of this state of the art warehouse and distribution centre was completed in 2010. Some of the most advanced construction methods were used for this 400,000 sq. ft. freezer and refrigerated storage facility and 25,000 sq. ft. of office space. Sustainability was built into the design with LED lighting, hydrogen fuel cells to power vehicles and a TOP reflective roof. Phase 1 generated 800 new jobs. Phase 2 at 433,000 sq. ft. was awarded to Stuart Olson at the successful completion of Phase 1.

This $25 million hotel was completed in 2012. With 11 storeys and 160 units, this facility features a full range of guest amenities including a heated parkade, dining facilities and a fitness area with pool.

This 3 phase redevelopment and expansion completed in 2013, is located in downtown Calgary. Valued at $200 million, this north and south campus expansion and renovation project connects to the city’s LRT. Phase 1 renovations required that facilities remained open, requiring extensive preplanning. Phases 2 and 3 involved the construction of a new 280,000 sq. ft. South Campus facility, consisting of 3 levels of underground parking and 7 storeys of classrooms, labs and administration space. The new building connects to the North Campus and the rest of the downtown area via +15 and +30 bridges.
The project began with an $80 million renovation to a 1972 educational centre that continued to carry on operations, progressed to a $165 million new college structure in the heart of downtown Calgary and is concluding with a further $20 million retrofit of the renovated old campus. Delivering this complex project has been most challenging and a key component to its success has been the construction management process and commitment of Stuart Olson.

Today, the building has transitioned to a sport and fitness facility serving the City of Richmond and surrounding communities. It consists of two NHL-sized hockey rinks, basketball, volleyball and tennis courts and a running track.
This 170 million dollar project was a very complex design built on challenging sub-soil conditions with a very demanding schedule involving extraordinary planning and execution.

This $186 million, 3 phase expansion and renovation was completed in 2010. Phase 1 involved the addition of 2 levels of needed parking totaling 50,000 sq. ft. Phase 2 involved the construction of a 5 storey facility that today houses 4 patient units with a total of 32 additional beds. The phase 2 process required the relocation of roads, parking and site services without impeding the operation of the existing facility’s operation. Phase 3 involved the renovation of existing critical care units which included operating rooms and special care nursery facilities.
The project was the construction of a very complex hospital structure in a very tight market. The project required the Team’s best efforts to stay on schedule and budget while maintaining very high quality of all aspects of construction.
The LEED Gold submission is a testament to the dedication and hard work the Team put into project details.
