As the biggest residential development underway in Saanich, Travino will be a community unto itself, consisting of seven acres of land on the former Royal Oak school grounds. Features of the Travino Living buildings (will) include a common area with a gym, library and a theatre that seats up to 50 people; a community garden area for the residents, and secured underground parking. Green features includes solar assisted hot water heating and air conditioning and a heat pump system in every unit.
The project is being completed in four phases. Phase 1, completed in early 2015, consisted of the four-storey Travino Park and five-storey Travino Central. Houle provided the access control to each building and parkade, site-wide video surveillance, fire monitoring, and door access administered and monitored via the Houle Operations Centre Hattrix server for alarms. For Phase 2, the Travino Square building, completed in mid-2017, Houle provided the same scope of work as that of Travino Park and Travino Central, with the addition of audio visual options for the new homeowners. Phase 3, Travino Landing, is currently underway while Phase 4 is still to be determined.
