Construction Stage

Renovations and new construction around Whistler, Squamish and Pemberton are carried out year round, with work ramping up in Spring, Summer and Fall in particular for areas with high snow fall or extreme temperatures.

In order to begin construction, an approved building permit is required, and ground works for foundations must commence for any vertical construction. Throughout the course of this phase, Twin Peaks Engineering Ltd. is on hand to work with involved parties, provide ongoing support and ensure the construction meets the standards set out in the National Building Code of Canada 2015 and the British Columbia Building Code 2012.

Working with consultants and contractors

Throughout the construction process, consultants and building contractors will likely have questions pertaining to the shop drawings, such as asking for the approval of timber framed, steel and other specialist material shop drawings. They may also need clarification of structural details or elements, and they may request on-site inspections to gain approval of completed work, such as the placement of reinforcement steel prior to pouring concrete.

In all of these situations, and many more, Twin Peaks Engineering Ltd. will be available to answer questions and ensure the construction process runs smoothly.

Ongoing construction support

Twin Peaks Engineering Ltd. provides detailed site inspections and review of construction elements to ensure that the works have been completed in accordance with the detailed construction documents.

This is an important step to ensure that all elements of the planning and detailed design stages come to fruition as contractors and consultants carry out the work on-site.

Meeting construction standards

Twin Peaks Engineering Ltd. is dedicated to providing quality of service and ensuring structural elements are constructed in accordance with Canadian Standards to protect the end user and members of the public.

It is the responsibility of the structural engineer to meet these standards. A significant part of the design process addresses both the National Building Code of Canada 2015 and the British Columbia Building Code 2012, and our careful supervision during the construction stage of all our projects ensures these calculated plans become a reality.
