We are in the home stretch on another exciting commercial project and can’t wait to let you in on it. We were recently contracted by the CBRE Group, the global real estate services firm, to perform exterior construction work tenant at the TELUS Corporation building at 555 Robson Street, otherwise known as the Avigilon Building.
The scope of work for this project consisted of upgrading the well-known TELUS building by way of installing new steel canopies (an awning that provides sidewalk coverage) and glazing (large glass panels that sit over the awning). These canopies and subsequent logistical work involved working with cantilevered steel that 53,000 pounds and glass panels that weighed 18,000 pounds.
The real-estate market in Vancouver remains white hot and this building is no exception. Having originally bought this building from the TELUS corporation in 2015 for $42 billion, the Avigilon Corporation just closed a deal in February 2018, selling this same building for $107.5 million. Klondike is excited to play a part in the up-and-coming real estate market!
