Multi-residential + Mixed Use
This project is two apartment buildings consisting of 65 purpose built rental units on the campus of the new Comox Valley Hospital and North Island College campus. The unit mix in the project consists of: 15 420 sq ft2 Studio units, 35-580/ 620 ft2 1 bedroom units and 15-800 ft 2 bedroom units. The project has achieved a Development Permit and is currently completing Construction Documents in anticipation of a late September construction start. A CM at Risk construction contract has been entered into and is currently undergoing value engineering to optimize the quality/cost of the project. The construction is an innovative hybrid framing system utilizing mass timbre floors and off site manufactured stick built wall assemblies to shorten the construction schedule by 3 months. Similar approaches to off site manufacturing of plumbing and exterior wall assemblies are being investigated with the Construction Manager to pick up even more time on the schedule.
