This site functioned as a bank branch for many years. They provided client banking services on the ground floor. They had the basement space as well which was only utilized for a mechanical room and storage with a staff room and washrooms. The ground floor was originally three units in a strip plaza which had been opened up into one large space. The basement was still primarily 3 separate units with 12” block walls dividing the three units. Abandoned staircases in the basement had been encased in concrete block as well. An existing feature in this space was two large bank vaults, one the ground floor and one in the basement having 20” concrete walls and ceilings.
This project was a renovation and expansion to an existing Diagnostic Clinic as our client assumed ownership. The existing clinic was expanded from 930 sq. ft. to 1,580 sq. ft. The project was completed in two phases and it remained occupied throughout the construction period. All patient services had to be maintained during the length of the construction. The diagnostic centre was also upgraded to be handicapped accessible.
