The Kingston Leon’s facility on Princess Street was in need of a large addition. The project involved not only the construction of a 30,000 sq ft addition but also a massive renovation to the existing showroom facilities. The store was kept open throughout the construction to ensure that the client’s valued customers were serviced and retained.
Mark McKercher, president of McKercher Brothers, owners of the franchise store, met with our design/build team once a week throughout the project and had this to say:
“Bel-Con had a very good connection with local suppliers that I knew, and we all worked well together. The strategic planning was where Bel-Con really came into play. The timing was crucial, because we had to stay in business during construction.”
The original building was a Butler building as well, and the total floor area after this project was completed was 75,600 sq ft.
The project included the following Butler systems – Widespan structural system, Shadowall and Texture-Cote wall systems and an MR-24 standing seam roof.
