Description

Nose Creek Building E is located directly South of Dawson Wallace’s previously completed Nose Creek Buildings A & C site in Balzac, AB. Dawson Wallace was selected as the Construction Manager on this project due to our value engineering, commitment to schedule, and outstanding relationship with the client. Dawson Wallace has mobilized to site while the building is still being designed. Due to the tight schedule, we have proposed schedule saving techniques like frost prevention, precast gradebeams, shrink-wrapping the building, and creating a phased line at the middle grid line of the building to erect steel & precast from each end of the building (essentially building two buildings at once). There willalso be a large TI portion of the job that requires the same completion date as the base building. Dawson Wallace has been working closely with the design team to propose schedule saving techniques in order to meet the schedule demands. This building is scheduled to be completed at the end of September 2018.
