Pac West is proud to announce the completion of the exterior renewal project at the George Dowling complex in Port Alberni. The $2.4 million project involved a full building envelope and site rehabilitation. This included roof and cladding replacement with additional insulation for energy efficiency, exterior doors/windows, new patio doors, site lighting, venting, eaves/downspouts, mailboxes/unit numbering, new retaining wall and walkway creation, as well as wooden backyard fencing and concrete patio replacement and even a new custom playground.

The project also involved new heat pumps in the units to provide tenants with efficient heating in the main living space and air conditioning in the summer months.

Also included, were art installations from local indigenous artists at each site entrance

160 Front Street West includes over 12,000 square feet of retail space and 339 parking stalls.

Engaging customized SMART building and construction technologies developed by PCL, we are implementing our award-winning Job Site Insights™ (JSI) and Eddy Solutions™ sensor technologies on this project including, for example, concrete curing sensors that accelerate pour cycle times and reduce project costs. Together with Cadillac Fairview, PCL is constructing to LEED® Platinum and WELL Building Standards and – once operational – 160 Front will embrace Cadillac Fairview’s award-winning “Green at Work” program that harnesses leading global practices to integrate sustainability into property management and operations.
