Construction is moving along well at our Manhattan Development. The warm weather this summer helped us stay on schedule for our December completion date. On any given day, we have over 100 people working at our site. In times when we hear about such high unemployment rates south of the border, it gives me great pride knowing that our project is providing jobs to so many people. We are of course also building a fabulous new community in a beautiful area.
It is neat watching the coming together. At this point we have just started finishing the first building while we are installing the rough electrical, plumbing and heating services in the second building. Exterior cladding is well under way on both buildings and it seems like we’ll be beating the winter weather that’s fast approaching.
In our Manhattan Development, we have been cautiously trying to use as many environmentally friendly products and processes as possible. Our drywall and insulation is made out of recycled materials and are Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified. We are also making a huge effort to ensure the construction debris leaving the site is appropriately sorted and recycled as much as possible.
We are truly proud of Pratt Homes’ Manhattan condominiums in Barrie, Ontario.
