With the winter weather becoming an increasing threat day-to-day, there has been a major focus on tidying up loose ends as far as exterior work goes. This includes focusing on getting as much of the exterior concrete completed as possible, with the remainder planned for completion in the spring.
Last month at the Mosaic Centre, our deliberate efforts at building a site culture and implementing lean thinking came to fruition: sub-trade foremen were united for a morning of planning scheduling with the end goal of determining when this masterpiece will be complete.
Many people have started to hear the term “2-second Lean”; some have gone one-step further and tried to see how it works with a construction team. Here at Chandos construction, working side by side with Dennis Cuku of Oil Country Engineering, we have been implementing a change in mentality and culture on the construction site. There are many different ways and stages to implement this change; the simplest of them, one that everyone can do, is the 2-second Lean Win.
The best word to describe activity onsite since the last update would be busy! Major progress has been made onsite on all fronts. Focus on LEAN, paired with the team culture here at Mosaic has allowed us to be successful in building an awesome building and having fun at the same time.
Another great milestone occurred last Saturday as we celebrated with Clifton Lofthaug of Great Canadian Solar, during their “Megawatt Party”! In celebration of 1 MW of solar installation, the Mosaic Centre was the project that put him over the 1MW mark.
Upon arrival at work Friday morning we noticed there was an "intruder" in the building.

August has been another awesome month here for us at the Mosaic Project. Major progress has been made with the building envelope and atrium work.
It seems like every update we can thank the weather gods for this awesome summer we’ve been having. The dry weather has been helping our site progress on many fronts. Curb crossing construction is well underway and we anticipate pouring in the next few days. Once these are completed and the parking lot paved, access to site will be much improved.
We are nearing the 4-month mark of the Mosaic Centre project and are knee-deep in details now. Last week I wrote about potholes that were showing up in the process by way of unforeseen discrepancies. What has transpired over the last week has renewed my steadfast, although slightly shaken, certainty in the IPD process.
