One of our Edmonton crews closed off 2018 completing repairs on a dome skylight in the busiest mall in downtown Edmonton. The Edmonton City Center Mall Skylight project, being completed for Oxford Properties Group, consists of new sealed units, high temp membrane, and aluminum pressure plates to the existing skylight. The full exterior of the skylight received a full facelift and looks brand new!
Having the City Centre Mall open to pedestrians 24/7 and an occupied hotel directly below the skylight were some of the challenges we encountered during the renovation. Our crew needed ensure the hotel guests were not disrupted, which is why working hours were limited to 7 a.m. – 10 a.m. on some days. It was important that we were prepared the day before, so no time was wasted during our short window. With the mall open and occupied, we also needed to protect pedestrian traffic by establishing monitored control zone directly below the skylight.
Oxford Properties was extremely happy with our performance onsite and that all our work was complete with no complaints from the hotel or the tenants in the mall. They were also really impressed with our commitment to safety and the measures put in place that allowed us to complete the work on schedule. Oxford Properties has since provided us with information regarding work on the other skylights throughout the mall, budget pricing is being provided by our estimating department. It appears we have started to establish a partnership with Oxford Properties in Edmonton and fingers crossed for our next project.
