Giant Tiger, Manotick

Addition and Renovation

Lundy completely rejuvenated this existing facility and constructed a 10,000ft² addition. The business continued to operate without interruption throughout construction, posing a number of schedule and health and safety challenges. Daily construction operations were carefully coordinated with store activities and customer access needs. Lundy’s commitment to providing the best value for every construction dollar spent accorded well with Giant Tiger’s value philosophy.

Constructability Issues

  • The addition was constructed in the front of the building; the existing exterior wall was kept in place for almost the entire project to separate the retail store from the construction area. The exterior wall was dismantled at the last possible moment and the newly constructed retail area was merchandized in only 8 hours.  
  • The addition had to fit seamlessly and without complications to the original building. Lundy worked closely with the design team to identify and confirm the existing conditions of the site before completing the structural shop drawing process. As a result, every piece of steel fit perfectly with the original structure, allowing Lundy to mitigate many potential problems.
