On the boards

At JDa we love story telling, here you will find all projects updates and progress that we constantly share.

Rowan Avenue Childcare

The Rowan Avenue Childcare is dedicated to the placement of the Children of the City of Burnaby and Burnaby RCMP employees and offering vacancies to the broader community. The new facility will be able to accommodate up to 74 children, and it is located on a heavily sloped site adjacent to the City of Burnaby Amenities, Deer Lake Park, and the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts.

The project is currently in design development and is scheduled to be completed in 2025.

Burnaby Firehall #4 + #8

The Burnaby Firehall #4 + #8 is the first-ever IPD project the City of Burnaby has commissioned. Burnaby Firehall #4 has met the end of its service life, and it is expected to be replaced and resituated at a new site near Greystone Drivel. Burnaby Firehall #8 will be a new addition to the growing community of Burnaby Mountain in collaboration with Simon Fraser University. Both were designed to be sister halls, not twins and are nestled into the landscape of each respecting site.

Firehall #4 is near completion and will be open in the next few months, and Firehall #8 will be completed within 2024. Both firehalls have seen successes in their early design stage, with the help of the weekly IPD Big Room meetings to progress the schedule and achieve a 6-week validation process – Kudos to the IPD Super Team!

West Kelowna City Hall

The project began as a feasibility study that examined the concept of placing the new City Hall on an unused site adjacent to a natural rain gully and sports field. Now, the West Kelowna City Hall is currently well under construction and utilizes a cross-laminated timber (CLT) structure that uses local natural resources to enhance employees’ wellness and what they represent to the City of West Kelowna. Looking over the Okanagan Lake, this new modern facility paints a perfect picture of the future for the City of West Kelowna.

West Kelowna City Hall is near completion and will be open to the public this year. The new West Kelowna City Hall will be a space where both citizens and public servants can share the new spaces, providing strong support for the community.
