GBA Group

Stone House Reconstruction

Development and Project Manager

Ottawa, ON, Canada

2014 to 2017

Budget: $1.5 M

GBA was the development and construction manager for the Bennett Insurance Headquarters. In accordance with the City of Ottawa Heritage guidelines, the iconic 100-year old Davidson-Hope farmhouse was dismantled and reconstructed on a new site.

GBA prepared the necessary master schedule which reflected all aspects of the project including design, approvals, and construction. Following this initial planning, GBA worked with the client to determine procurement protocols for all construction trades and the approach to ensure best value for the project. This resulted in a mix of sole-source contracting for unique requirements and competitive tendering.
