Terrace Lodge Redevelopment Update - December 2021

As the 2021 construction season ends, Phase One of the Terrace Lodge Redevelopment Project is progressing in general conformity to the approved construction schedule and at this time is on track to move to Phase Two in late 2022. A minor 5-week schedule delay experienced thus far was predominantly the result of inclement weather (wet Summer and Fall), and a discrepancy in building dimensions that required extended delivery time of select construction materials. A detailed summary of construction progress achieved in 2021 is as follows;

  • March 2021 – Start of project, clearing of site and setting up of construction trailers and staging/storage areas. Construction of temporary access lane for the project.
  • April – May 2021 – excavation of addition, preparation for the relocation of the exiting ground mounted air handling units for north and south wings.
  • June – Aug 2021 - Ongoing forming and pouring of concrete footings, pads, and walls. Delays experienced due to multiple heavy rain events throughout the summer.
  • Sept – Nov – Completion of foundation, installation of all underground electrical conduit and plumbing. The erection of all structural steel framing and metal studding. Ongoing installation of above ground electrical conduit, and mechanical rough-ins. Installation of concrete floor on ground level.

Staff have been working on several items to be brought forward to the Committee for their review in the new year.

  • RFP - Nurse Call System procurement, has been reviewed by staff and the design team. A recommendation will be coming to the Committee at its next meeting.
  • RFP – Interior Design Consultant procurement, under review by staff and the design team. A recommendation will be coming forward to the Committee at a future meeting.
  • Tender Preparation for Network/Communications cabling, results to be presented to the Committee at a future meeting.
  • The Draft Development Agreement received is currently being reviewed by County staff, an update will be provided to the Committee at a future meeting.

Staff continue to work with the Ministry and the Construction Management Team to continue to move the project forward. This is achieved by regular site meetings and inspections, and frequent communications with our construction manager.

The Fundraising Committee continues to plan, coordinate, implement and evaluate its activities in support of the Comforts of Home fundraising campaign. This campaign is designed to enhance the Terrace Lodge Redevelopment Project with amenities that will provide a more home-like environment for the residents. The Committee is currently engaged in a number of promotional initiatives leading up to Christmas. This part of the campaign is encouraging the community to share their holiday spirit by considering donations to Terrace Lodge as part of their gift-giving. The Fundraising Committee will provide Council with a more detailed report, including a financial update, with recommendations for consideration, in February of 2022. Meanwhile, you can follow the progress as regular updates are made to the online catalogue at www.donatetoterracelodge.ca.
