In 1999, Seward Park’s roof plaza above the garage collapsed. FirstService Project Management stepped in to manage the rebuild. During the course of construction, the contractor went bankrupt, leaving the building with a semi-complete project. Our team reorganized the project together with the architect in order to complete the job within budget and on time.
We were hired to rebuild the rooftop plaza. Our scope included building a new playground, park and adding another 100 parking spaces above ground. Additionally, the collapse affected the garage beneath it and we had to undertake a large scale restoration project as the underground garage had 300 parking spaces.
