Project info

Woodgrove Centre is Vancouver Island’s largest shopping centre, attracting close to 6 million visitors annually. Located in the harbour city of Nanaimo, BC, the mall features over 724,000 square feet of retail space and over 140 stores and services. 

We delivered a full scope of electrical construction and structured cabling for the mall’s 2016 renovation. Our work included the major removal and replacement of lighting, installing new floor boxes for power and data throughout the mall, and adding exterior canopies. 

Throughout the project, we successfully utilized Lean Construction methodology to manage inventory during the project. Materials were set up in large mobile job boxes that were easily transported to different areas of the mall to streamline production.

As the mall remained operational throughout the renovation, we coordinated our work around the operational requirements of the shopping centre. We remained committed to working night shifts for a year, which allowed us to meet the schedule and maintain excellent relations with the general contractor and owner.
