The private conversion of the McKellar hospital into 102 seniors assisted living apartments was a big challenge. The original tenders came in at over 10 million. Working with an owners budget of 6 million we adjusted the design and made changes to work within the owners budget of 6 million. There are always unknowns in renovation projects and McKellar was no different the building had been left without heat for years and this resulted in our share of unexpected repairs. All the workers that were there at the start could not believe how well the finished product turned out.
