Motor Works Private, Automotive Park Development

This project involved the development of a 14 acre site located in the west end of Barrhaven which was not serviced by any local utilities or municipal water and sewer. The property had to undergo a dynamic compaction process and major excavation and fill to make ready for the eventual development of four (4) separate dealership sites. 

Once the site development was complete and raw services provided including independent water (well) and sanitary systems, MB Ford Construction was retained to construct three (3) dealership buildings, Dilawri Barrhaven Chrysler, Dilawri Barrhaven Mazda and Myers Barrhaven Nissan. All building were independently constructed ranging in size from 19,000 Sq. Ft. to 27,000 Sq. Ft. and constructed between June 2016 and October 2017.

All projects were implemented under a Construction Management contract including the selection and management of the Architectural, Mechanical, Electrical, Structural, and Civil design consultants. As noted, MB Ford Construction was involved from the start of site development through consultant engagement, site plan development, design, tendering and construction. We were responsible for obtaining all necessary municipal and construction and occupancy permits. User requirements were developed separately for each dealership with the assistance of MB Ford Construction who also provided valued engineering strategies to reduce overall project costs. The total project including the three (3) dealership buildings was completed October 2017.
