Tsawwassen Mills Mall is one of the first major developments on Tsawwassen First Nation Lands. Located at the intersection of Highway 17 and 52nd Street in south Delta, not far from the Tsawwassen ferry terminal, the fully enclosed 1.2 million-square-foot shopping centre can accommodate 200 stores. The mall, a hybrid concept that combines the best of a traditional shopping mall with the savings of an outlet mall and the added attraction of dining and entertainment options, contains 16 anchors, including Bass Pro Shops store, the first of its kind in British Columbia.
Houle Electric was responsible for the base building electrical installation for new mall which included the lighting, service and distribution, data and security systems as well as the complete fire alarm installation for the mall and all tenants.
The large footprint of the building and site had its challenges. As well, Houle faced multiple changes due to leasing which were required to be completed in tight time frames to meet the scheduled opening day.
Overall, the great teams from Houle and the contractor’s side working together ensured that the project was completed on time and was an extremely successful project.
