Sunterra Market Bankers Hall

Sunterra Market: 241 – 315 8 Ave SW

The Goal:

Full renovation of the existing Sunterra Market and expansion into the adjacent tenant space to almost double the markets size.  Updating the layout, finishes and production areas to meet Sunterra’s new standard and provide an internal seating area.  To facilitate the renovation, we constructed (2) temporary store locations in (4) weeks to ensure Sunterra’s presence in the downtown core is maintained. 

The Space:

The project consisted of a full renovation of roughly 4,900 sq ft of Sunterra’s existing space. And, additional expansion into roughly 4,000 sq ft of adjacent vacant space.  All mechanical, electrical, refrigeration, audio visual and finishes were fully revised for the new market layout and design.  The project was located on the +15 level of the Bankers Hall Mall. Numerous steps were needed to be taken to mitigate impacts to the public during the renovation. 

Project Complications:

We worked with Sunterra to plan and fast track the renovation of two temporary stores for them to maintain presence in the downtown core to retain clientele.  We also coordinated numerous owners supplied items such as: 

  • large custom-made pizza oven from Italy
  • exhaust hoods
  • cooking equipment 

to ensure that correct services are provide as well as ergonomics and compatibility are maintained in the custom millwork and layout.  

Due to the increased size of the market a roof mounted refrigeration condenser was added requiring structural steel supports and a crane lift. 

The Team:  

The team consists of an interior design firm which is 3iii, Electrical Consultant (Mulvey and Banani Electrical Engineers), Mechanical Consultant (Smith and Andersen Engineering. 

The project manager was Kevin Goudie and the site superintendent was Darryl Hoobanoff.
