This project comprised of a new 12,500 square foot facility linking the existing “C” and “D” buildings on the George Brown College Casa Loma campus. Construction included a four storey steel frame addition with an elevator and stair penthouse between the existing buildings. The project also included interior renovations to the existing structure in order to accommodate the additions while staff and students occupied all other areas of the college. Aquicon acted as construction managers on the project, tendering all of the trade packages using a sequential tendering process. This process allowed Aquicon to commence with the footings while the drawings were being completed.

“A great community of construction trades was formed under Aquicon’s supervision, and the company devised phasing strategies to ensure the owner’s operations would not be compromised.”

Peter Ng, Associate, Kearns Mancini Architects Inc.

Aquicon closely coordinated with all of George Brown College’s major activities during college shut down periods and holidays in order to maintain a safe, smooth and disturbance-free operation for its faculty and students.
