Contract: Fixed price
Danesco markets and distributes a wide range of kitchen accessories. When the company reached the full capacity of their facilities, they turned to Broccolini to enlarge their warehouse.
Founded in 1963, Danesco is a distributor of assorted kitchen accessories, supplying big-box stores, chain stores, food service suppliers, retailers and specialty shops throughout Canada and the United States.
Danesco mandated Broccolini with the expansion of its current headquarters located on the Trans-Canada Highway in Kirkland. The expansion targeted the building containing their offices, a production room and a 31,500 sq.ft. warehouse, including a 2,500 sq.ft. mezzanine. The building features metal siding and three (3) loading docks.
The work, which began in October 2011, included the excavation, construction of the structure, and the creation of the exterior envelope of the expansion. The employee parking area was also significantly expanded.
The project's main challenges were the extent of the required excavation and backfilling, the execution of the project in winter conditions, and the adaptation of the existing drainage system to comply with new municipal norms (which did not apply to the building originally erected in the 1980s). The contract as a whole ended at the beginning of 2012.
