Our latest timelapse of The Mosaic Centre build is up! The worksite is looking great and this video is a true demonstration of all the hard work that's happened over the past few months. We're getting close to completion!
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.
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.
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.
Work is moving along steadily here at the Mosaic Centre. The freezing temperatures over the past few weeks have allowed us to work without fighting the mud and soft soil conditions. This has improved efficiencies as well as the general mood onsite; nobody likes playing in the mud for 10 hours a day. Who would have thought the return of winter would be such a blessing!!
I approached the Mosaic Centre construction site and felt my stomach flip. A carefully constructed labyrinth of security fence, job shacks and survey stakes consumed the corner lot. Holy shit … “we’re really doing this Harry”. At that moment, it felt like the entire project experience to that point in time was like a fire drill. Unprepared for the emotion that would rise up, I sat frozen in the driver’s seat and looked on.
Steering through chaos (and right through lunch)
Today was COOOOOOOL! I was running out of one meeting to head into the WebEx conference call with Shafraaz, Christy and Dennis. I was at the University and sat down at a bus stop to see what the plan was. Shafraaz asked if I got his invite, I did on my phone so instead of pulling out my computer and tethering my phone for internet, I looked for a WebEx app.
