Westwood Shopping Centre -TD Canada Trust
The Westwood Shopping Centre comprising 132,841 square foot shopping centre is located on the southwest corner of Portage Avenue and Westwood Drive. In late 2001, Gisele MacDonald became involved with this property in the capacities of project manager. A long range plan was developed by Chartier Property Management Inc. in concert with CB Richard Ellis Manitoba for the center and includes the development of pad sites and remodeling of the facade of the centre. In addition a comprehensive study of the mechanical, electrical, roofing and parking lot system was completed with general upgrades to all systems by the year 2004.
The construction of a new TD Canada Trust building comprising 6,500 square feet commenced in the Spring of 2002. This involved obtaining TD site plans and specifications for contractors and maintaining a close liaison between the Landlord and TD Canada Trust. Our mandate was to complete the project on a tight schedule and maintain the budget to meet the completion date as set out by TD Canada Trust to comply with their commissionary deadline. Throughout this process we have continued to evaluate personnel, contract supervision, Tenant relations, preventative maintenance and security procedures to ensure a smooth operation of the construction.
