This upgrade replaced the signalized intersection at Highway 17 and McTavish Road. As the Major Structures Contractor, Kinetic performed the construction of a steel tub girder underpass and pedestrian overpass.

Features of the new interchange:

  • Roundabouts to improve safety and travel time for various modes of transportation including transit, cycling and walking to      Victoria International Airport and ferry terminals, and local traffic travelling within the community or to adjacent municipalities.
  • Improved opportunities for future transit service, including access for Rapid Bus, and an expansion of the current park-and-ride service (for a total of about 200 spaces).
  • Access for cyclists and pedestrians with pathways and a separate crossing.
  • Better air quality due to reduced greenhouse gas emissions and more efficient energy use due to less idling / stop-and-go traffic and increased use of transit.
  • Reduced noise caused by stop-and-go traffic.

This project included a 440 m² (4,700 sqft) visitor centre with an attached 185 m² elliptical exhibit room. The exposed timber and glulam structural system along with the lofty open areas of the visitor centre creates a very warm and welcoming atmosphere.  The elliptical exhibition area posed construction challenges, but a very rewarding final product.

The project is located close to a major connector route and its unique appearance has made it a local landmark.

This project won Judges Choice, at the 2012 Vancouver Island Real Estate Board’s (VIREB) Commercial Building Awards as well as the 2014 Community Recognition Award from the Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities.

Kinetic performed work for an addition and remodel to Blue Grouse Winery, one of the first bonded wineries on Vancouver Island, outside Duncan, BC. The project added one level and a mezzanine (6,228 sq ft) to the existing winery. To do so, Kinetic salvaged a portion of the working winery by building around it on three sides to expand wine-making capacity and add a hospitality component. This scope included a commercial kitchen, tasting room, retail shop, offices, and toilet rooms. In addition, there was a great deal of site work to establish a new entry drive, parking, stormwater and irrigation pond and new electrical service as well as a new process and domestic waste systems.

This project was named “Judges’ Choice – Best Overall Entry” at the 9th Annual Vancouver Island Real Estate Board’s Commercial Building Awards ceremony and won the “Award of Excellence” in the Hospitality category.

Project Description:
The project involved the construction of a new eight-classroom addition to the existing school. The proposed two-storey addition consisted of a steel structure with a slab on grade lowest floor, steel deck upper floor and steel deck roof. Five washrooms, a flight of connecting stairs and group areas also feature in the design. The addition included exterior and interior finishes that tied into the existing building and it required some selective demolition.
Kinetic was able to work closely with the framing sub-trade in order to pre-fabricate all wall panels off site, to expedite the structural framing work and make the best possible effort to meet the hard deadline - the start of the school year.

Ten years ago, Kinetic was engaged as the General Contractor to undertake the renovations to the pool deck and change rooms at the Strathcona Gardens Aquatic Centre. The facility’s management wished to have the pool and change rooms finished and re-opened to the community users back in operation as soon as possible. However upon the start of construction, major structural issues were discovered and additional work was required. 

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text module_class="m-0 pt-0 pb-30" _builder_version="4.14.8" _module_preset="default" global_colors_info="{}"]

Despite this challenge, Kinetic worked with the owner to fast track the project. The change room floor had several drainage areas which made for a complex slab installation. The project also included extensive and complicated tile work, including signage in the pool deck. Kinetic’s current management team was involved in the execution of this project which provides us a unique perspective of the facility.

This project involved the construction of a new 1,947 m2, two-storey Junior School and associated siteworks. Meeting LEED® Silver Certification, this project is an excellent example of alternative energy usage. From groundwater geothermal heating systems to new low energy automated lighting systems, all aspects of this unique building were designed with the environment in mind. Exterior garden swales, grass-grid and Aqua-pave ensure the sustainability of not only the project, but neighbouring sites as well.

Originally built and opened in 1905, the CPR terminal was expanded to a larger building to replace the original terminal in the early 1920’s. Throughout its history it housed the CPR steamship passenger terminal, the Royal London Wax Museum and in 1975 it was sold to the Province which managed the property through the Provincial Capital Commission (PCC) and in 2009 commissioned Kinetic to undertake the seismic reinforcement of the structure, and the restoration of the building’s neo-classical details. Driven by the mandate of protecting the historical integrity of this building, the Kinetic Project Team carefully planned the execution of the scopes of work in order to accommodate the installation of seismic upgrades, as well as the reconfiguration of the spaces that would house the new mechanical and electrical elements. 

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text module_class="m-0 pt-0 pb-30" _builder_version="4.14.8" _module_preset="default" global_colors_info="{}"]

The project entailed a new 13,000 sqft two-storey addition to an existing community centre, interior renovations and modernization, as well as a complete building envelope remediation to the existing building’s exterior. The new addition is of wood-frame heavy timber construction, with extensive use of glulam timbers and exposed fir decking. The existing building also
underwent a complete building envelope remediation, involving the replacement of extensive rot and replacement of exterior cedar siding, roofing, and skylights. As the work was being completed within and around a fully occupied facility, careful planning and phasing of the work was done.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text module_class="m-0 pt-0 pb-30" _builder_version="4.14.8" _module_preset="default" global_colors_info="{}"]

The project involved creosote timber piles and concrete grade beams on a site that was near sea level. As excavations were performed, it would fill with water as the tides came in and out. To alleviate this, Kinetic coordinated the work and deeper excavations with the tides, as well as installed well point dewatering to assist in the work.

The project’s scope involved the seismic upgrade of George Jay Elementary School. The building’s primary structure was built in 1909, with various new classrooms that had been added over the years. There were major masonry components included in the scope of work that Kinetic undertook. A new entranceway addition and mechanical upgrades were also part of said scope. Our team implemented measures such as documenting the original state of the rooms prior to the seismic upgrades in order ensure the historic characters and functional school aspects were returned to how they were.

They also engaged the consultants and subtrades proactively in order to maintain and ultimately achieve the tight schedule. Although the overall project was executed in the unoccupied school, the schedule was tight and needed to be met in order to facilitate the timely start of the school year. Careful coordination, planning and the responsiveness of our and the sub trades’ crews were critical to achieving this.

This project consisted of a phased renovation and interior fit-out project for a private school in Downtown Vancouver. The total size of the project was approximately 60,000 SF. Phase one began with a new space ready for complete tenant within the existing building including new lighting, paint, drywall, TVs, furniture and data services. Phase two involved construction of the remaining space including a science lab, video production room, meeting rooms, conference rooms and additional open classroom space. Light fixtures and furniture were also included and this portion of the project was completed while the school was occupied.

With a tight deadline not unusual for an academic institution and partially occupied, adjacent spaces, the Kinetic project team went above and beyond to mobilize immediately and deliver the project in a timely manner. Furthermore, we returned to assist with scopes of work not originally part of the project, but as we established a trusted performance, we were able to assist in this manner.

The original Dunsmuir Middle School was built in 1965. The blocks to be upgraded included the original building and the 1967, 1969, 1973, 1976 and 1977 classroom additions. Mechanical, civil code upgrades as well as a new roof and some minor non-structural seismic upgrading in the remainder of the school were also performed. This project was in construction while the school was fully occupied. Twelve (12) portable classrooms with washroom facilities and an outdoor corridor space were set up for temporary use during construction. 

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text module_class="m-0 pt-0 pb-30" _builder_version="4.14.8" _module_preset="default" global_colors_info="{}"]

Eric Lindokken, Project Manager, and Dennis McCallum, the Site Superintendent, provided an approach that resulted not only in delivering the renovations with the highest quality, but also, 4 months ahead of schedule. Ensuring safety and restoring the school to its original state prior to construction were priorities that our team executed flawlessly and to the satisfaction of all stakeholders.

This project’s timeline presented schedule constraints from the very start as it is known that school construction completion must be achieved in late July or August at the latest. Kinetic was approached in March of 2017 and asked to deliver the project by September 2018. It was determined that only a integrated design and a fast tracked construction approach would accomplish this target successfully. The project was planned for execution over 17 months, but was actually delivered in 13 months, just in time for their opening in September and at a reasonable cost. This allowed the owner to deliver on its student enrollment commitments and gain an additional year in revenue.

The Meadowlane Independent Living project has been designed to provide 48 units plus two staff suites, adjacent to an existing medical clinic. The design, location and services incorporated into the building complex will promote it as a community hub. There is a specific area designated to host the Salt Spring Seniors Services Society. A commercial kitchen, administrative offices, library, media and fitness rooms, and other amenities will be located on the main floor while a commercial laundry and service areas will be built into the partial basement of the facility. Three-storeys high, the residential units are designed and will be equipped to accommodate residents with mobility challenges and provide comfortable and aesthetically pleasing spaces. Decks in the individual units and the communal spaces will provide access to the outdoors for the enjoyment of the residents.

After a successful and productive period of pre-construction services, Kinetic has recently started construction of the Salt Spring Commons Housing project which will consist of 24 units divided among eight triplex buildings located within walking distance of the Ganges village, schools, parks and transit. The pre-construction phase has allowed us to establish relationships, select and engage local trades to perform certain scopes of work. These two and three bedroom units will provide a much-needed affordable housing option to the residents of Salt Spring Island and will be centered around shared open spaces, surrounded by pedestrian pathways. The buildings will be surrounded by gardens and natural spaces that will blend this addition to the neighbourhood into the forested setting.

Kinetic was awarded the exterior renovation of the Walter C. Koerner Library. The project involved a renovation of several floors of the Walter C. Koerner Library, consisting of four (4) phases to be performed on Levels 2, 4, 5, and 6. Phase one consisted on renovating Levels 6 and 2 North concurrently. On Level 6, the space was unoccupied, and the work involved the addition of two (2) offices as well as renovation of the washroom entry. Once the bookshelves were removed, construction of new workstations and offices proceeded. For phase 2, the work on Level 4 took place on the entire floor and the renovation on Level 5 included only the North side. Hoarding was required for the work taking place in the vestibule on Level 4. Work on phase 3, Level 5 South was finalized in the Summer of 2020.

Kinetic was awarded the Construction of a new wood frame, 20,000 sqft First Nations elementary school, consisting of seven (7) classrooms and a multipurpose room. There is also a sunken gathering circle space and First Nations Art pieces were incorporated througout the facility. The school features a single-storey mezzanine area with exposed glulam structural beams and exposed cedar siding to showcase First Nations and West Coast culture elements. Kinetic worked in close collaboration with the Client representative and the consultant team to incorporate the striking elements that make this such a unique facility. Impacts to schedule were minimized, but maintaining a direct and clear communication with all stakeholders was key to managing everyone’s expectations. Completing the project in May of 2019, was an achievement that our team was satisfied with and the client appreciated.
