Avant-Garde was hired as the Construction Manager for the construction of a new 62-unit apartment building in Saint John NB.
In partnership with Fundy Engineering and Johnson Engineered Solutions, we took an active role in the design-build of this project.
The wood structure building was pre-fabricated off site by Atlas Structural Systems and Shamrock Truss in modular components saving close to two months on overall schedule.
The building, located in the north end, is considered to be a forerunner of the gentrification happening in that part of the city. Offering features such as barrier-free units, functionality suited to senior living, underground parking garage, common spaces tailored to suit active-living, reading and media as well as a Social Room outfitted with high-tech functionality and kitchenette that is open to residents and the community alike for holding functions. This project had very precise requirements.
Construction completed October 2015.
