MCC was contracted to provide management and contract services for the building envelope restoration project at the Carleton Lodge, Whistler BC. This project entails full window and siding removal, roofing and patio replacement as well as some interior renovations while the commercial owner’s (Longhorn Bar and Grill and Whistler/Blackcomb retail location) remain open for business. This project started in April 2014 and is scheduled to complete in November 2014. To-date Murphy Construction has met all mandated milestones for this project.
Client: Whistler Resort Strata Management & Real Estate Co.
Murphy Construction was engaged to prepare the tender package for the Carleton Lodge Building Envelope Remediation project. Prior to engaging Murphy Construction, the project cost, parameters and timelines were not clear. The Murphy Construction Team took a common sense approach and brought their experience in the industry to work with the consulting professional to explore various options for building systems and to solidify potential costs. Throughout the tender process they strove to find opportunities to deliver value and cost certainty. They worked cooperatively with all stakeholders as the design elements beyond the building envelope system were developed, again bringing useful input based on real world experience.
Upon engagement to deliver the project, Murphy Construction has been diplomatic in dealing with the many interests involved in the building (residential and commercial owners, the RMOW, Whistler Blackcomb Operations, consultants). Murphy Construction has brought cost certainty to a type of project that has been subject to rampant time and cost over-runs in other buildings in Whistler. They have demonstrated an understanding of the operation necessities of working in a resort town, scheduling work to minimize impact on business operations and a willingness to accommodate the client’s needs and deliver a successful project.
