Maple Reinders was awarded the Design-Bid-Build contract for a seven-storey, 80-room expansion adjoining the existing Holiday Inn Express hotel in Kelowna. The expanded structure features new conference meeting facilities (providing an additional 6,800 sf of meeting space), executive-class rooms, business and family suites, a spacious fitness facility, a laundry room and the addition of two waterslides at the existing indoor pool.
The scope of work further encompassed public washroom facilities for the conference/banquet area, as well as an 18,000 SF underground parkade.
The construction methodology called for the seven-storey structure to be constructed using cast-in-place concrete.
With the completion of Maple Reinders’ work, Holiday Inn was able to expand its primary client base from seasonal tourists to business and conference functions.
Maple Reinders was contracted to Design-Bid-Build a 35,000 SF curvilinear building, which included operable windows, a raised access floor with personal air control devices, flow-through air pattern circulation; as well as warm and inviting interior finishes to add to the level of human comfort for occupants.
The construction of the school took place while the existing Westbrook School (built in 1953) was in use for an entire school year. The contract included abatement and demolition of the existing school which was undertaken during the summer break.
