Tradespeople have started work on the $2.7 million renovation at the Ottawa Construction Association’s (OCA) new headquarters at 9 Antares Dr. in time for the association to move there from its current location at 196 Bronson Ave. at the end of June.
Ron Eastern Construction Ltd. (RECL) is overseeing the project as construction manager, says OCA president John DeVries. RECL “has assisted us through the process of architect and engineer selection under a CM (Construction Management) contract.” McRobie Architects has designed the renovated structure.
“The renovations have started this past week (in early January), with the second phase of the interior demolition,” DeVries says. “Contracts with all the sub trades are being concluded this week following trade tender process in November.”
RECL president Bruce Thomas provided a list of the key project sub trades, which include:
Electrical – Day-View Electric
Roofing – Raymond Roofing
Structural Steel – Simcon Steel
Glazing – Transit Glass & Aluminum
Drywall – Sapacon Drywall
Flooring – Jacques Lamont
Painting – Vision Painting
HVAC – Seabrook Bros. Mechanical
Plumbing – Climate Works
Concrete Work – Terimax Construction
Millwork – LTR Industries
Masonry – De Marinis
The OCA says it will have 3,790 sq. ft. of tenant space available for lease when the building opens on July 1. “The lease rate has been set at $10 per sq. ft. Net with operating costs still to be determined but expected to be around $12 per sq. ft.,” the association says. “Being part of the OCA headquarters will provide any tenant with access to our training and meeting rooms.”
