The Erin Mills Town Centre shopping mall announced a significant investment in renovations in celebration of their 25th anniversary. A major component of the renovation features the replacement of the clock tower by an iconic massive glass sphere.
Mandated by 20Vic Management Inc., Broccolini proudly broke ground for this magnificent construction project in September 2013. Spanning over 2 years, the project consisted of the renovation and expansion of the prestigious Erin Mills Town Centre shopping mall. In addition to the renovations, Broccolini built 25,000 sq.ft. of new shopping areas, including a new food court on the 2nd floor. An interior courtyard in the new section will be highlighted by a massive 90-ft. diameter, double curvature glass sphere suspended from the ceiling.
As the Centre is a popular shopping destination, it was necessary that the mall remain in operation throughout the process. Therefore, all the construction work has to take place at night, after the mall is closed. Strong communication is essential for the proper operation of the project; the day teams (architects, engineers, planning team) need to ensure to put clear plans in place for the night crews.
Like all construction, the work is messy. Unlike in open construction sites, the team must make sure to plan time for cleanup at the end of each night before the mall opens at 8:00 each morning (storage of tools and materials, cleaning away dust and debris).
