The popular community hall of Lakeview needed repair to the roof and walls. The extensive renovation required as little disruption as possible, along with working with the challenge of winter weather.
The renovation began off site by pre-building walls and roof sections to help ensure that the hall remained open to guests, and had as little downtime as possible. With the walls and roof sections built and ready for installation, we removed the sagging roof and walls, and replaced with them with the pre-built sections. The hall was closed for only 2 days. This work, as well as a new rear deck, was all done at the height of winter.
To ensure the hall was accessible to everyone, the last task of the renovation project was to install a 60-foot long aluminum ramp. At the grand opening ceremony, West Kelowna mayor Doug Findlater (in a wheelchair after breaking his leg snowboarding) was the first to use the hall’s new aluminum ramp. Due to the creative problem-solving and precise timing of our team, the renovations were completed, ensuring that the building would be structurally safe for the many functions and guests it hosts every year.
