Builders' Plumbing & Heating
The existing office building was demolished and replaced with a 3000sqft building addition consisting of new kitchen and bath showrooms, offices, staffroom, washrooms, storage and reception area.
The new addition was constructed with a concrete pile and grade beam foundation, structural concrete floor slab, and a wood framed wall/roof system.
The exterior building finishes are a combination of EIFS stucco and stone and the existing 6000sqft shop was re-clad with new prefinished metal cladding and gutters.
One unique challenge we faced on this project was constructing the building to the maximum possible size. Working within city bylaws and zero lot lines VPM was able to maximize the project size and coordinate even the smallest of details (example: upper parapet protrusions) so as not to encroach on the City easement. Working alongside the interior designer, we were able to implement a variation of color and shapes to provide the client with a modernized building for years to come.
