The project site is about an hour and a half away from our location in Alberta, so we couldn’t drop in as often as we desired, so we employed dedicated supervision to keep things moving at an efficient pace.
As far as material scarcity and supply chain issues go, we leveraged our experience and reputation with suppliers to ensure minimal delays in delivering relevant materials to the job site.
It’s important to note that much of the work was seasonal and wholly dependent on rainfall amounts during the warmer months when we can feasibly work. Luckily, we had a dry summer in 2021 - so much of the site work was done on schedule.
As of now, the project is 90 percent complete. We focused on interior work during the cold winter months, and now that spring has arrived, we’ve shifted our focus to the finishing touches. This includes finishing the access and trunk roads, manicuring the campsites, installing the power services, and ensuring the sites are ready for consumer use.
In June, we’ll commission the water services for applicable campsites, the shower building, and the outhouses. This will bring the project to completion in time for prime camping season.
The team at Southwest and Midwest Design & Construction are thrilled to have been a part of this project. Not only did we have the honour of working on such a historical landmark, but we also added to our ever-growing project repertoire.
We may not have been the lowest bidder, but our experience and readiness to problem-solve shone through.
