Our Midwest Design and Construction team held a series of meetings with the City of Medicine Hat’s facility management team early in our planning process to help establish the initial design, budget and scope.
This early collaboration set the stage for our team working closely with the City of Medicine Hat’s Project Manager to ensure the project was completed successfully and in accordance with the predetermined criteria of time, budget and scope.
Building Transport Logistics
As noted, this project involved moving an existing building and constructing a new addition on the final site.
The existing building is a sizable 3,000 sq.ft. existing building, which involved careful planning to ensure safe transport to its new home!
We prepared the building for relocation by removing fixtures, furniture, fittings, and any other attached items. We then lifted the existing building off of its foundation and placed it on a flatbed trailer for transportation. The route to the new building’s destination is carefully planned to avoid heavy traffic, power lines, narrow roads, and power lines.
Once the building arrived safely at the new location, we reversed the above process. We lifted the building off of the trailer and placed the building on the new foundation designed to accommodate the weight of the transported building. We then reattached the building to necessary utilities such as water and electricity.
